What are the standards?
Standards are everywhere. Essentially, a group of experts agrees on the best possible way of doing things and then a standard is created around it. There are many international standards relating to multiple aspects of performance. International Standards are often designated as ISO – XXXX where X denotes a number. National Standards will follow the format AS/NZS 3500 or similar (this code governs the installation of certain fixtures in Australia and New Zealand).
What are ‘Plumbing Codes’?
Codes and standards are very tightly linked, except standards might be international and optional while codes are regional and mandatory. The Plumbing Code of Australia (PCA) is set out in the third volume of the National Construction Code (NCC). The NCC is produced and maintained by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB), which is a joint initiative of federal, state and local governments (the Council of Australian Government, or COAG). Pipe relining is obviously a subset of plumbing and is also governed by this code.
