This International Standard specifies valve design, production and marking requirements, and type test
methods for valves intended to be fitted to gas cylinders which convey compressed, liquefied or dissolved gases.
This International Standard does not apply to valves for cryogenic equipment, for fire extinguishers or for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).
Additional specific requirements for valves fitted with pressure-reducing devices (see ISO 22435 and EN 738-3), residual pressure-retaining devices and non-return devices (see ISO 15996), and bursting discs and pressure-relief devices (see ISO 4126 and prEN 14513) are not covered by this International Standard.
NOTE Requirements for valves for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) are specified in ISO 14245 and EN 13152, and in ISO 15995 and EN 13153. Requirements for valves for cryogenic vessels are specified in ISO 21011. Further specific requirements for valves for breathing apparatus are specified in EN 144-1, EN 144-2 and EN 144-3.
