A new standard AS/NZS 5395 Best Environmental Practice PVC Pipes and Fittings Standard has been published . Best environmental practice (BEP) PVC is a reliable, safer, and more environmentally friendly 🌏 way to produce PVC. This is the only standard worldwide specifically developed for PVC. It takes into account PVC’s whole supply chain from the production of PVC resin, use of additives, the manufacturer of finished goods through to end of life considerations.

Coinciding with this new standard, PIPA published today an updated companion Industry Guideline POP106 Verification Guidance for Best Environmental Practice PVC Pipe and Fittings.
