Corrosion can lead to degradation of water quality and affect the mechanical characteristics of drinking water piping systems. Alternative solutions consist of replacing traditional inorganic materials by plastic materials. A review of the organic materials used in drinking water distribution systems is presented in relation to their specific application. Future aspects of the European Regulation for Drinking Water Construction Products and the next European Approval Scheme (EAS) are developed.
