1.5 Tap market potential through the new technical regulations

In mid 2012, DIN withdrew the DIN 1988 standards parts 1-8 dated December 1988 and replaced them with the new basic European standards DIN EN 1717, DIN EN 806-1 to 5 and the national supplementary standards. After the Drinking Water Ordinance, these standards define the generally recognised codes of engineering practice which must be adhered to as a minimum. The market potential that can be tapped as a result of these technical rules is described.
