There are legislation requirements regarding the marking of pipe work in the UK, EU and other countries, there are also standards standardising the colour schemes used when marking pipes. These are the British Standard (BS 1710) and the European Standard (RAL), all our tapes are designed to mark up pipes in accordance with these regulations and standards.
Pipes should be assessed as part of a health and safety assessment in accordance with The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) 1998 and The Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999. Pipes containing dangerous substances must be marked in order to comply with the Health & Safety (Safety Signs & Signals) Regulations 1996, these regulations govern the shape, colour, & pattern of signs for pipe marking. In accordance with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Heal Regulations 2002 pipes must be marked with what substance is contained with in the pipe, the direction of flow, and the pressure it is under. In addition to these EC Directive 92/58/EEC requires that all visible pipes conveying dangerous substances be labelled with a symbol or pictogram against a coloured background.
Pipeline marking should be applied every 7-14m of pipe work, at any change of direction of the pipe, where the pipe passes through floors and walls and close to any valves.
All of our Pipeline Identification Tapes are BS 1710:1984 unless stated otherwise. We now supply BS 1710:2014 Britsh Standard 2014 pipe identification tape. Please contact us for more information.
