Definition - What does Accepted Use mean?

Trenchlesspedia explains Accepted Use
Standards are essential to the integrity of any industry. In trenchless construction, it is important that operators comply with requirements that have been established to maintain the highest qualities and best practices that contribute to the greatest success. Accepted use policies or product lists help to communicate to the industry what is or is not allowed.
Accepted use standards can be established at any level. Small towns may define which products or methods are permitted for public projects within their boundaries. Metropolitan areas, states, companies or trade organizations can also develop accepted use lists that affect vendors, members, or constituents. Each trenchless construction operator is responsible to comply with relevant accepted use requirements.
All materials will have a listed accepted use clause that indicates what the material, tool, or machinery can be used for and what it cannot/should not be used for.
