The first two product categories for immediate task force action will be UV treatment systems & end-point/dispensers
Following the release of the sustainability certification standard WQA S-803: Product Sustainability for Activated Carbon Water Filtration Systems, the Water Quality Assn. (WQA) is now recruiting members to participate on industry task forces to be assembled for the purpose of drafting revised language for additional product categories to be included as annexes to this existing voluntary standard.
The first two product categories on the table for immediate task force action will be ultraviolet treatment systems and end-point/dispensers (to include coolers, heaters and carbonators).
All potential stakeholders from manufacturers and dealers to academics and regulators are encouraged to participate in bi-weekly calls that will be convened to accomplish this next phase of standard development work.
Interested parties should contact Stuart Mann, sustainability certification supervisor for WQA, at [email protected]  or 630.929.2546.
