The Australian Water Quality Centre (AWQC) was the first laboratory in Australia to offer testing to AS/NZS4020. The first products were submitted in 1992 and since that time, the laboratory has tested over 3000 products.
To extend our services the AWQC offered to list products/materials (that have met the requirements of AS/NZS 4020) in a directory to those companies that expressed an interest. The directory provides an avenue for interested parties to seek information from the listed companies, regarding products that have been tested by the AWQC and have met the requirements of the Standard. All information contained herein has been provided in good faith with no liability for inaccuracies.
Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards Scheme
The Water Efficiency Labelling and Standard (WELS) Scheme, which became mandatory from July 2006, applies national water efficiency labelling and minimum performance standards to certain water-using products. The Scheme was introduced by the Australian Government in collaboration with State and Territory governments, and applies to new clothes washing machines, dishwashers, toilet (lavatory), urinal and tap equipment and showers (flow controllers are optional).
The WaterMark Certification Scheme is a mandatory certification scheme for plumbing and drainage products to ensure that plumbing and drainage materials and products are fit for purpose and appropriately authorised for use in plumbing installations.
