In particular, ceis will carry out tests accordint to the following standards:

  • SANS 21138-1-2-3 Plastics piping systems for non-pressure underground drainage and sewerage — Structured-wall piping systems of unplasticized poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC-U), polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene (PE)
  • SANS 4427-1-2-3-5 Plastics piping systems — Polyethylene (PE) pipes and fittings for water supply
  • SANS 4437 Buried polyethylene (PE) pipes for the supply of gaseous fuels – Metric series
  • SANS 16422 Pipes and joints made of oriented unplasticized poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC-O) for the conveyance of water under pressure
  • SANS 674 Steel Reinforced Spirally Wound PE Drainage and Sewer Pipes
  • SANS 966-1-2 Unplasticized poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC-U) pressure pipe systems

ceis increases his international acknowledgements by more assessment bodies. The SABS certifications have a high value in the markets of countries like South Africa, Angola or Nigeria.
