This document provides more detailed and more technical background information relating to this topic of the sixth call for proposals under the specific programme for standards, measurements and testing (SMT), 1994-1998. The main aims of the work to be undertaken would be:

- To review the disinfection practice in European countries and provide guidance to CEN on the approach to be adopted ;
- To assess several types of organic products commonly used for piping and storage systems in contact with water intended for human consumption to obtain data on their inertness after they have been submitted or not to a range of disinfectants;
- To validate the results with a statistic evaluation and establish figures for each product and disinfection condition.
