RPZ FAQs: Testing

What is a commissioning test?

This is an on-site procedure to confirm a newly installed or repaired RPZ valve is installed and functioning in accordance with the requirements of the RPZ AIM

It is required by water undertakers before an RPZ valve can be brought into service. It applies to all newly installed RPZ valves and any valves which have been relocated, replaced, had components changed or RPZ valve installation which have been dismantled in anyway.

Full details are provided in section 5 of the RPZ AIM.
