ACS

In 1999, in order to help this sector of the Industry demonstrate the suitability of the use of their products, the French health authorities developed a system to certify the sanitary conformity denominated ACS (Attestation de conformité sanitaire).

This system allows the evaluation of the suitability of a product to come into contact with water destined for human consumption, according to the French decree of May 29th 1997, and subsequent amendments. The decree is applicable to plastic material objects as well as accessories containing at least one plastic component in contact with drinking water.

The conditions for obtaining the ACS are very similar to those defined in the EAS (European Acceptance Scheme) project, the future harmonised system which is currently under preparation by the European Commission.

ACS, issued by a laboratory authorized by the French health service, enables the evaluation of the suitability of a material or object which comes into contact with drinking water through rigorous screening of the formulation in addition to the execution of strict tests on the moulded article.

Lati S.p.A., through its Customer Assistance service, is able to support customers in the validation process of their products until this prestigious certification which is indispensable for the French market has been obtained. The wide availability of raw materials from qualified suppliers enables the preparation of specific formulations which allow our customers to achieve this important recognition successfully.
