Throughout the last year there was among the Nordic Water Utility Associations discussions and concerns about the future co-operation within the Nordic Poly Mark (NPM).
After an invitation from the Nordic Plastic Pipe Association, a meeting regarding the future for Nordic Poly Mark as a joint interest was held in June 12 in Oslo.
We had a good meeting and we have a shared vision of a strong NPM for both the user organizations and the market, that secures that we can guarantee the quality for the Nordic market.
We have agreed on a structure for the future work and will use the summer to work out the details for a new start in October.
Most important there will be a board for NPM with 4 members each from the Nordic Water Utility Associations (chair) and Nordic Plastic Pipe Association (secretary).
