NSF Intl. Achieves Accreditation to Issue Australian WaterMark

Part of NSF Passport Program, manufacturers can now obtain certification for WaterMark

NSF Intl. announced it earned accreditation from the Joint Accreditation System for Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ) to issue the Australian WaterMark, required on plumbing and water treatment products sold in those countries.

The approval is part of NSF’s new Passport Program, which helps companies obtain global market approvals for products in contact with drinking water. These products include faucets, pipes, flexible connectors, mechanical fittings and drinking water treatment products. As a result of the new accreditation, NSF now certifies plumbing and water treatment products to the Australian WaterMark Certification Scheme. Plumbing and drinking water manufacturers can now obtain testing and certification from NSF that meets both NSF and WaterMark certification requirements simultaneously.

In addition, manufacturers seeking compliance in other countries can obtain multiple certifications from NSF as part of a complete suite of global testing and certification services. A sampling of other approvals by NSF includes but is not limited to: the U.K., Brazil, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Malaysia.
