    Sorry but at first I almost answered..... Why would you buy Italian Valves, thinking the project in the United States, was not till I saw your signature did I realize where you were located. In my 40 years in the business I don't think I have ever specified of reviewed submittals on an Italian Valve. Plenty from Germany and Netherlands on machinery for food processing. 

    Here in the US we have to have lead free manufacturing processes

    Most valves for water will meet American Water Works Association (AWWA) standards (Listings and approvals appropriate for service)

    Seats, stems, style appropriate for installation and  appropriate for service

    Could list another 20 items to review on submittals.

    I am not familiar with that manufacturer but I work for an Italian valve manufacturer, Jomar Group. I know the 100 series for Jomar - lead free meets all the requirements for dezincification resistant brass in the ISO 6509 standard as well as NSF 61. Jomar holds more certifications than any valve in the industry so it world be worth checking out for your design requirements.
