Free Certification to Meet National
Construction Code (NCC) Lead Free Requirement
As part of the 2022 edition of National Construction Code Volume Three (Plumbing Code Australia), to be adopted on 1 May 2023, the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) has limited allowable lead content in plumbing products that contain copper alloys and are intended for use in contact with drinking water, to a weighted average lead content of no more than ≤ 0.25%. This requirement is to be accompanied by a transition period to enable industry time to have new and existing products certified to conform to NSF/ANSI/CAN 372. From 1 May 2026, these provisions will be in effect, and only products that conform to the new requirements will be authorised for installation in Australia.
ICC-ES has a long history of evaluating plumbing products to conform to NSF/ANSI/CAN 372 lead standards and can certify specified plumbing products to meet the new Lead Free WaterMark standards.
Contact us today to have your plumbing products certified to meet these new requirements.
ICC-ES PMG is accredited by JASANZ to certify Lead Free Products under the WaterMark Scheme and is offering a free certification* to NSF/ANSI/CAN 372 so that your products are ready for these changes.
The WaterMark Certification Scheme is a mandatory national product certification scheme for specified plumbing and drainage products. The Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB) administers and manages the Scheme.
