Founded on February 24, 1999, the PE100+ Association is an industry organisation of several polyethylene (PE) manufacturers whose objective is to guarantee consistent quality at the highest level in the production and use of PE 100 pipe material. The authors describe the current situation in terms of European standardisation and demonstrate the Association’s requirements with regard to product quality. Those enhanced requirements are monitored every seven months, which ensure the safe transport of drinking water, natural gas and industrial fluids. The advisory committee also is described, which is a very important group for the Association. The PE100+ Association is a marketing platform for PE piping in general and PE 100 in particular. This is done via two main tools, the Association’s website www.pe100plus.net and series of seminars.
