Recommended Code of Practice for Safe Water Temperatures
14 February 2020This document replaces the previous Recommended Code of Practice for Safe Water Temperatures published back in March 2000 which has now
been withdrawn. The original Code of Practice was developed by manufacturers through the Thermostatic Mixing Valve Manufacturers Association (TMVA).
Over time the TMVA has evolved into the ‘Water Safety and Hygiene group’ within BEAMA and its scope has expanded to cover a wider range of
valves and other products. Its focus is now to deliver safe hot water solutions on a systems-based approach as well as at point of discharge.
