FOR CERTIFICATION OF
STEEL PIPES FOR WATER
AND SEWAGE (168.3 to 2032 mm outside diameter)
ACCORDING TO IS 3589:2001
(Incorporating Amendment No.1 to 3)


1.0 LABORATORY- A laboratory shall be maintained which shall be suitably equipped and
staffed, where different tests given in the specification shall be carried out in accordance with the
