WaterMark Certification Scheme

WaterMark Logo

The WaterMark Certification Scheme (WaterMark) is a mandatory certification scheme for plumbing and drainage materials and products to ensure they are fit for purpose and appropriately authorised for use in plumbing and drainage installations.

The ABCB manages and administers WaterMark as a national scheme. The NCC, Volume Three requires certain plumbing and drainage materials and products to be certified and authorised for use in a plumbing or drainage installation. These materials and products are certified and authorised for use through WaterMark.

For further information about the operation of WaterMark please refer to How It Works and the WaterMark Certification Process flow chart. An overview of WaterMark is provided in the WaterMark Brochure.

Further information about development of referenced documents is provided in the Specification Development for WaterMark and PCA Compliance infographic.

An improved version of the WaterMark Certification Scheme was launched on 1 July 2016 and will be progressively implemented from 1 July 2017. For more details about the improved scheme please refer to the Improved WaterMark Scheme.
