    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification includes the manufacturing requirements and installation guidelines of a precast duct bank system including polyvinyl chloride (PVC) duct enclosed in a concrete envelope. This specification also includes information relating to trenching, backfilling, plugging, and other incidentals necessary for a complete installation.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.3 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
