BS EN 12056-2:2000

Gravity drainage systems inside buildings. Sanitary pipework, layout and calculation

Status : Current, Under review   Published : September 2000



BS EN 12056-2:2000 covers wastewater drainage systems which operate under gravity. It is applicable for drainage systems inside dwellings, commercial, institutional and industrial buildings.

This standard sets out principles to be followed for both layout and calculation. It makes limited provision for drainage systems conveying trade effluent and also makes limited provision for fluids removed by pumps.

Differences in plumbing within Europe have led to a variety of systems being developed. Some of the major systems in use are described but this standard has not attempted to detail the intricacies of each system. Detailed information additional to that contained in this standard may be obtained by referring to the technical documents listed in an annex to this standard.
