EN1057:1996 Seamless, round copper tubes for water and gas in sanitary and heating applications, was revised, in 2006, within the framework of two mandates given to CEN by the European Commission and the Free Trade Association, and supports the essential requirements of the EU Construction Products Directive (CPD) 89/106/EEC and the EU Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) 97/23/EC.
To indicate conformance with these requirements, the CE mark is applied by label, on bulk delivered quantities initially placed on the European market. Copies of applicable information can be obtained by clicking the links below.
The CE mark is a passport for free trade across Europe. It does not replace existing national regulations for specific application (e.g. water, gas, sanitary and heating etc.) and should not be confused with any applicable quality approval marks.
