The International Water Service Flushability Group (IWSFG) has released its draft flushability standard for public comment.

All WSAA members are invited to visit the IWSFG website where they can download and respond to the proposed PAS via the process detailed on the site. As a foundation member of the IWSFG, WSAA is directly involved in representing the Australian water industry in developing and finalising the PAS.

Comments are due by the 1 September 2017. The IWSFG will then meet to address the comments and where agreed by the group, amend the standard. The process to approve the final standard will be consistent with that used by International Organisation for Standardization (ISO).

The standard will be published as a Publicly Available Standard (PAS) later this year. To sign up to receive notification of the release of the standard, please email:
