ASSE International and the Standards Institution of Israel (SII) have entered into an agreement for SII to license two ASSE standards for adoption in Israel. This agreement will allow SII to easily adopt ASSE standards for the Israel market, preventing the need for the development of duplicative international standards.
The agreement is initially for two standards: ASSE 1055-2018, Performance Requirements for Chemical Dispensing Systems with Integral Backflow Protection, and ASSE 1030-2016, Performance Requirements for Positive Pressure Reduction Devices for Sanitary Drainage Systems.
The agreement, which will automatically renew annually after the first three years, calls for SII to prepare its standards in Tel Aviv, Israel, distribute copies of them to the public by sale, rental, lease or lending, and publicly display them.
“Having uniform global standards for the plumbing and water treatment industry is a longstanding goal for ASSE International,” ASSE Executive Director Tom Palkon said. “This agreement with SII will help the industry by not requiring duplicative standards and regulatory requirements.”
The Standards Institution of Israel leads the Israeli economy in the writing of standards that ensure the safety and soundness of products, laboratory testing, services, and processes that touch on all aspects of people’s lives. SII is part of the international quality community and an active member in international standards and certification organizations, including the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). SII also has recognition agreements that facilitate foreign trade.
