Scope
1.1

This Standard covers mechanical couplings that are used to axially join pipes and fittings in non-pressure drain, waste, and vent (DWV) piping systems and sewer piping systems located inside or outside buildings and above ground or underground.

Notes:

1) Caution should be exercised when installing mechanical couplings at low temperatures. The coupling manufacturer should be consulted.

2) Caution should also be exercised when installing mechanical couplings at the base of stacks, at cleanouts, or at offsets in a piping system (see Annex A).

1.2

This Standard specifies requirements for mechanical couplings of the following types:

a) Type 1: couplings that are used to join pipes of the same or different materials or sizes and that incorporate a centre stop and an external shield.

b) Type 2: couplings that are used to join pipes of the same or different materials or sizes, but for which a centre stop and/or shear ring are allowed but not required.

c) Type 3: couplings used to join hubless cast iron pipe and fittings. Such couplings are composed of a stainless steel shield, a clamp assembly, and an elastomeric sealing component that complies with ASTM C564.

d) Type 4: elastomeric bellows expansion joint couplings used to join pipe of the same or different materials or sizes incorporating pipe stops.

Note: Pipe and pipe-fitting materials that may be joined include

a) fibrocement (CSA B127.3);

b) cast iron (CSA-B70);

c) concrete (CSA A257 Series and ASTM C14);

d) copper (ASTM B306);

e) acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) (CSA B181.1, CSA B182.1, ASTM D2661, and ASTM F628);

f) polyvinylchloride (PVC) (CSA B181.2, CSA B182.1, CSA B182.2, ASTM D2665, and ASTM F891);

g) galvanized steel (ASTM A53/A53M); and

h) vitrified clay (ASTM C700).

1.3

This Standard does not cover the joining of pipes and fittings with bell and spigot ends that use an elastomeric gasket seal.

1.4

Users should note the existence of other standards developed for different types of couplings or coupling materials, e.g., ASTM C1173, ASTM C1277, ASTM C1440, ASTM C1460, ASTM C1461, ASTM C1540, and ASTM D5926.

1.5

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the Standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.

1.6

The values given in SI units are the units of record for the purposes of this Standard. The values given in parentheses are for information and comparison only.

Scope:

This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following.

This International Standard deals with the safety of electric warming plates, warming trays and similar appliances intended to keep food or vessels warm, for household and similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V.

Appliances intended for normal household and similar use and that may also be used by laymen in shops, in light industry and on farms are within the scope of this standard. However, if the appliance is intended to be used professionally to keep vessels warm or to process food for commercial consumption, the appliance is not considered to be for household and similar use only.

As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by appliances that are encountered by all persons in and around the home. However, in general, it does not take into account
- persons (including children) whose
   - physical, sensory or mental capabilities; or
   - lack of experience and knowledge
    prevents them from using the appliance safely without supervision or instruction;
- children playing with the appliance.


NOTE 101 Attention is drawn to the fact that - for appliances intended to be used in vehicles or on board ships or in aircraft, additional requirements
may be necessary;
- in many countries additional requirements are specified by the national health authorities, the national authorities responsible for the protection of labour and similar authorities.

NOTE 102 This standard does not apply to
- appliances made of flexible material, such as textile material;
- appliances intended exclusively to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas);
- appliances intended exclusively for commercial catering or industrial purposes

1                   Scope

1.1      General

This Standard outlines installation and maintenance requirements associated with a number of commonly used ESC measures. In addition, this standard provides general best practice guidance for installing and maintaining ESC measures in conjunction with construction activity, including standardized guidance with respect to adhering to product manufacturer instructions. This standard further provides guidance for evaluating and selecting ESC measures based on intended functionality and site-specific applications.

1.2      Application

The requirements provided in this Standard apply to construction projects or related activities that result in disturbed ground, including excavations, vegetation removal, grading, and development related activities. This Standard also applies where ESC measures are required by contract, permit, approval, regulation, or other authorization. 

The installation of ESC measures shall be preceded by the design of a detailed Erosion and Sediment Control Plan. Once ESC measures have been installed, maintenance of the measures shall be performed to maintain their integrity until such time that stabilization goals have been achieved at the completion of a project phase.

This Standard applies to the installation and maintenance of ESC measures during soil disturbing activities including

earth works (e.g. stripping and grading, clearing and grubbing);

construction of structures (including but not limited to housing subdivisions and commercial centres);

construction of infrastructure (including but not limited to roads, bridges, utilities, sewers, watermains); and

expansion or rehabilitation of any of these facilities or structures.

1.3      Structure

This Standard consists of three parts. The first part provides general requirements for installing and maintaining ESC measures. Secondly, the Standard provides a quick reference guide, arranged by functional need and appropriate application, for a number of commonly applied ESC measures and processes. Finally, for each of the measures and processes covered in the reference table, installation and maintenance requirements are provided.

1.4      Users

This Standard is intended for use by those with a vested interest in ESC elements of construction projects. Stakeholders may include project owners, regulatory authorities, design professionals, qualified erosion and sediment control inspectors, contractors, contract administrators, and other persons interested in the successful installation and maintenance of ESC measures.

In general, this standard is also intended for use where applicable standards aren't currently available.
