WRAS, Water Regulations Advisory Scheme, is the certification of drinking water safety in the UK.
WRAS is the UK water industry’s certification scheme whereby products recognized by this scheme demonstrate compliance with the requirements of the Water Supply Systems(Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 and its amendments.
The main objective of WRAS is to avoid water of water, misuse of water, abuse of water, inappropriate consumption of water, incorrect measurement or contamination in water.
WRAS certification is a must for the soft sealing butterfly valve to enter the UK market. Although it is not mandatory, it is already a practice. One of the procedures that must be accepted by the water company when supplying water is to check whether there is a certification that meets the requirements of relevant standards, the approval of WRAS is the most convincing proof. Those who don’t have that WRAS certification will not be eligible for water supply. Which means if your soft seal butterfly valves are not certified by WRAS, they couldn’t be used in pipeline systems to delivery drinking water.
The certification scope of soft sealing butterfly valve mainly includes: components material certification and product certification, such as the rubber fittings of soft sealing butterfly valve, the coating quality outside and inside of the butterfly valve products,etc.
