    This standard has been declared obsolescent as new equipment is unlikely to be manufactured to this standard, but there is a great deal of equipment in accordance still in service and which will require to be supported for many years to come

  • BS 1659:1950 Specification for tractive armature direct current neutral track and line relays for railway signalling
    This standard has been declared obsolescent as new equipment is unlikely to be manufactured to this standard, but there is a great deal of equipment in accordance still in service and which will require to be supported for many years to come

  • BS 1745:1951 Specification for alternating-current relays for railway signalling: track relays (double-element, 2-position), line relays (single-element, 2-position)
    This standard has been declared obsolescent as new equipment is unlikely to be manufactured to this standard, but there is a great deal of equipment in accordance still in service and which will require to be supported for many years to come

  • BS 1924 Stabilized materials for civil engineering purposes

    • BS 1924-1:1990 General requirements, sampling, sample preparation and tests on materials before stabilization
      This standard has been declared obsolescent as there are a number of references that will need updating by the committee and sampling methods and this cannot be done at present

    • BS 1924-2:1990 Methods of test for cement-stabilized and lime stabilized materials This standard has been declared obsolescent as there are a number of references that will need updating by the committee and sampling methods and this cannot be done at present

  • BS 2452:1954 Specification for electrically driven jib cranes mounted on a high pedestal or portal carriage (high pedestal or portal jib cranes)
    This standard has been declared obsolescent as it is Superseded by BS EN 14985:2007

  • BS 3505:1986 Specification for unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (PVC-U) pressure pipes for cold potable water
    This standard has been declared obsolescent as it applies to pipework with a design life of 50 years and should therefore not yet be withdrawn. The National Forewords of BS EN 1452-1:2000, BS EN 1452-2:2000, BS EN 1452-3:2000, BS EN 1452-4:2000 and BS EN 1452-5:2000 do correctly state that these will be made obsolescent (and not withdrawn)

  • BS 4346-1:1969 Joints and fittings for use with unplasticized PVC pressure pipes. Injection moulded unplasticized PVC fittings for solvent welding for use with pressure pipes, including potable water supply
    This standard has been declared obsolescent as it applies to pipework with a design life of 50 years and should therefore not yet be withdrawn. The National Forewords of BS EN 1452-1:2000, BS EN 1452-2:2000, BS EN 1452-3:2000, BS EN 1452-4:2000 and BS EN 1452-5:2000 do correctly state that these will be made obsolescent (and not withdrawn)

  • BS 7291-4:1990 Thermoplastics pipes and associated fittings for hot and cold water for domestic purposes and heating installations in buildings. Specification for chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (PVC-C) pipes and associated fittings and solvent cement
    This standard was proposed for withdrawal in the September 2008 edition of Update Standards because following a systematic review carried out earlier in the year, the committee concluded these pipes were no longer manufactured in the UK. It has since been discovered that PVC-C is one of the materials called up as suitable for condensate drainage pipes in BS 6798 (section 4.3.3.1). As a result, it has now been decided to declare the standard as obsolescent
