Specifies a method for the assessment of the ability of a material in contact with water intended for human consumption to promote growth of micro-organisms. The method is applicable to all types of plastics materials (including coatings) and metals with a solid surface in contact with water intended for human consumption, and which do not release compounds with toxic properties for micro-organisms. This pre-standard makes a distinction between materials and coating materials based on polymers, mentioned coatings hereafter. Also materials in contact with other types (swimming water, industrial water types), materials used in medical equipment and materials used in contact with foods (drinks) can be tested with the described method.
