The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) manages and administers the WaterMark Certification Scheme (the scheme).
The Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ) accredits Watermark Conformity Assessment Bodies (WMCABs), who in turn evaluate and certify plumbing and drainage products.
WMCABs are responsible for evaluating new products to an approved specification, for inclusion on the WaterMark Product Database. If a new product cannot be evaluated to an approved specification, a new or amended product specification can be submitted for the ABCB Office to review and approve. Once approved, the WMCAB can undertake an evaluation of the new product.
The WaterMark Administrative Framework details the relationship of key stakeholders and their role in the scheme.
