This document specifies the procedures and acceptance criteria for manufacturing tests and examinations (sometimes called "initial inspection and tests") of valves designed and type tested in accordance with ISO 10297.
This document is applicable to:
a) cylinder valves intended to be fitted to refillable transportable gas cylinders;
b) main valves (excluding ball valves) for cylinder bundles;
c) cylinder valves or main valves with integrated pressure regulator (VIPR);
d) valves for pressure drums and tubes.
NOTE Where there is no risk of ambiguity, cylinder valves, main valves, VIPR and valves for pressure drums and tubes are addressed with the collective term “valves” within this document.
The principles of these manufacturing tests and examinations can be beneficially applied to cylinder valves type tested to national or International Standards other than ISO 10297.
