What is it?: BS EN736-2 is the middle part of a three part series of standards defining Terminology used in BS EN valve product standards. This part deals with those items that are hardware.

Why is it important?: A clearly defined valve language is essential so that we can all effectively communicate with each other. By also using these words and phrases in your product catalogues and drawings you are using defined Terminology which will help to avoid mis-interpretation during the development of contracts.

Supersedes: A 1997 version.

A revision of the standard is being proposed. Now is therefore the time to review the existing definitions and propose amendments where you disagree with the current definition. It is also the time to add new definitions for hardware items that you believe need defining.
