BS 6297 is applicable to systems for handling discharges from domestic and commercial sources from single households and upwards. These sources are typically septic tanks and package treatment plants.
This Code of Practice gives general advice on good design and installation practices. Particular requirements are determined by local conditions. The recommendations are supplemented, as required, by specialist advice.
