This international standard specifies the evaluation method of life cycle analysis of ductile iron pipes used for water applications.

Studies on economic and environmental impacts are important for utility decision-makers as they seek to balance fiscal concerns over immediate and long-term needs across acquisition, operations and maintenance, and planned end of life. For authorities and engineers designing pipeline systems, the life cycle cost analysis serves as a tool to study various scenarios to determine the right solution for site-specific conditions and community values, as well as provide the necessary data to support those decisions.

Informative Annexes are included in this standard as a compilation of reference and consensual factors (pumping cost, leakage accident rate, etc.) but it is recommended to use local data when they are known and verifiable.
