WaterMark Certification Scheme

The WaterMark Certification Scheme is a mandatory certification scheme for plumbing and drainage products to ensure they are fit for purpose and appropriately authorised for use in plumbing and drainage installations.

Progressive Implementation of the Scheme commenced on 1 August 2017.

As from 1 August 2017, certain plumbing and drainage products (as listed on the Product Database of the Scheme) are required to be used in installations as regulated by the NCC BCA Vol. 3 Plumbing Code.






Fixtures, fittings and appliances regulated by the scheme are showers, taps (except over a bath) flow controllers, toilets, urinals, dishwashers, clothes washing machines and combination driers.

Builders and plumbers installing new work must ensure that all products comply with the WELS regulation and labelled as such with their Water Rating information in accordance with Australian Standard AS6400: 2016. (This standard can be downloaded free of charge from SAI Global).

PENALTIES CAN BE IMPOSED IF UNREGISTERED, UNLABELLED OR INCORRECTLY LABELLED PRODUCT IS INSTALLED IN NEW WORK.
