WaterMark is a government regulatory scheme, and is currently administered by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB).

The Scheme falls under the Plumbing Code of Australia (AS 5200) and is designed to provide a uniform national approach to plumbing product approvals. All WaterMark Certified products/goods comply with all present relevant standards and specifications.

WaterMark is a mandatory scheme in Australia, showing a product complies to a specific Australian or International Standard.

A WaterMark, normally applied to products that are installed in the Water Supply system.
Some examples are:
– Shower and Tap fittings
– Hot Water Systems
– Pipes, Valves and Fixtures
– High Hazard Appliances
– Waste Units
– Drainage Pipes, Valves and Fixtures
– Low Hazard Appliances

Though a mandatory scheme, there are some exemptions.
These can be found on the ABCB’s website here.

WaterMark Certification is based on the supply of test reports (from NATA or ILAC approved laboratories and testing facilities), technical documentation, quality plan and on-going annual audits.

Dedicated to all things building and plumbing, this is where you find information from the ABCB on matters directly relevant to the NCC: https://ncc.abcb.gov.au/

See the following videos from the ABCB about the WaterMark Scheme.

outlines the WaterMark Certification Scheme and its purpose.
What requires WaterMark?
explains the types of products that require WaterMark Certification and how to know if a product has been certified.

Using the Product Database which shows how to search for certificates or products, download key information, and what to do if you can’t find a product in the database.

Lead in Plumbing Products

This Implementation Plan is a roadmap for the national transition to lead free plumbing products through NCC 2022 and sets out the key milestones and review points for installation and enforcement.
