What is this standard about?

BS 6920-2.1 is part of a well-established series of standards that help protect the quality of the UK’s drinking water.

Who is this standard for?

  • Water testing companies
  • Water regulators
  • Local authorities
  • Health and safety industry
  • Environmental and legal profession

Why should you use this standard? 

The BS 6920 series of standards has been developed to protect the UK population from non-metallic products that come into contact with drinking water, including their effect on flavour, odour and microbial growth. They help ensure that both UK legislation (Water Supply Regulations) and European legislation (Drinking Water Directive) are met.

Section 2.1 describes the preparation of test samples of all types of non-metallic (including cementitious) materials and products, including water fittings and components, pipes and materials used in coating, protection, lining, jointing, sealing and lubrication, for their suitability for use in contact with water intended for human consumption, with regard to their effect on water quality.

BS 6920-2.1 does not cover metallic materials and products, unless used in conjunction with a non-metallic material, e.g. a coating.

NOTE:  National authorities or regulators might require specific additional testing on extracts from certain types of materials; interpretation of these results is the responsibility of the requesting body.

What’s changed since the last update?

  • BS 6920-2.1 has been revised by technical experts in line with industry and technological developments.
  • Recent updates align it with best practice in the water industry and help meet legal regulations laid down by both UK and European Directives.
