WaterMark Product Specification Consultation

The ABCB is responsible for the review and approval of all existing, new or amended product Specifications for adoption into the WaterMark Scheme. The Scheme Rules provide procedures and requirements for development of a new, or amended Specification. These procedures and requirements include releasing the draft document for public comment. This is to ensure all stakeholders are informed of any proposed Specification development and have the opportunity to provide input prior to finalisation of the document.

Stakeholders are invited to provide comment on any of the draft Specifications open for comment. All comments must be submitted to watermark@abcb.gov.au using the WaterMark Public Comment response sheet provided.

Draft specifications open for Public Comment

Draft specifications currently open for comment are listed below:


WMTS-040 Waste pipe connection outlets and gratings, separate or integral

Specification WMTS-040 currently doesn’t contain a Materials Section. Therefore the use of any material is not restricted within the WMTS and the use of some materials may have adverse consequences when used in certain applications. A Proposal for Change has now been received to amend the WMTS to include a Materials Section, outlining what types of materials may be suitable for waste pipe connection outlets and gratings.

The public comment period for this Specification closes on Friday 7 September 2018
