Material and product failures in plumbing installations can cause failure of plumbing systems and lead to contamination of the water system. The WaterMarkᵀᴹ Certification Scheme (WMCS) 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. The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) manages and administers the WMCS.
WaterMark product database
Materials and products complying fully with the applicable requirements of the WMCS are eligible to be certified by a WaterMark Conformity Assessment Body and are listed on the WaterMark Product Database.
Products exempted from WMCS
The WMCS provides for the exemption from WaterMark certification. Products which been exempted can be found on the WaterMark List of Exempt Materials and Products.
