WaterMark Certification Scheme
JNOD Australia has not applied for Watermark Certification as YET.
Watermark approval will be applied for after JNOD Australia has a sound understanding of what appliances are most sort after in Australia.
WELL's require that each product SERIES has to be applied for separately which is very expensive to do.
There is a requirement in the National Construction Code Volume Three – Plumbing Code of Australia for certain plumbing and drainage products to be certified and authorised for use in a plumbing or drainage installation. These products are certified and authorised through the application of the WaterMark Certification Scheme.
Certified products are listed on the WaterMark Product Database and are identified by the WaterMark certification trademark, which must be marked on the product upon the granting of a WaterMark Licence. To search the Database, go to www.abcb.gov.au.
Seven types of water-using and water-saving products are regulated under the Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards (WELS) scheme.
