We are pleased to release the latest WSAA Product Specifications. WSAA Product Specifications Issue 6 has been developed to facilitate:

  • appraisal of products
  • referencing in contract technical documentation such as project specifications and design drawings; and
  • procurement of products and materials for use in the construction of water supply and sewerage networks.

Product Specifications need some work by the specifier before they can be applied. Options have to be closed out and specific Agency requirements included. An example of a project specific Product Specification is included with the Overview to the Product Specifications. 

Product Specifications will continue to be developed as more Industry Standards and Australian Standards are published.

Where there are functionally equivalent products having significant manufacturing differences more than one Specification is provided e.g. one Specification may apply to a product manufactured locally to an Australian Standard and the alternative Specification may apply to an imported product manufactured to an internationally recognised standard e.g. an EN Standard.

It is an individual Water Agency's or designer’s responsibility to choose a Specification most appropriate to its needs or a particular project. Consequently, a Water Agency or designer may provide a unique product Specification or may choose to amend a Specification to reflect project specific or local requirements.

Issue 5 of WSAA Product Specification has been superseded and replaced with Issue 6 dated October 2018.

Product Specifications Issue 6 can be downloaded from the WSAA Shop.
