WaterMark Certification Scheme (WMCS)

Australian Certification Services has developed a set of procedures in order to meet the basic requirements of the WaterMark Certification Scheme (WMCS). The WMCS identifies two pathways as applicable to the type of product; these are nominated WaterMark Level 1 and WaterMark Level 2 certification. Where the product type is one that is not described in the WMCS or is innovative in design there are mechanisms whereby an assessment may be undertaken in order to determine if certification is required and if so procedures to incorporate the product type into the WMCS. There are also certain product types that either do not require certification or lie outside of the scheme

WaterMark Level 1

This level of certification is commonly referred to as System 5 certification and requires design evaluation and independent testing to determine product compliance with the relevant standard identified as applicable in the WMCS. The certification also requires an assessment and ongoing surveillance of the production processes or quality system, including inspection or testing of samples of product.

Following successful evaluation the applicant is issued with a formal licence to use the WaterMark certification logo on the products along with a formalized certificate of conformity and allocated certification number which is traceable to the product and certificate holder by way of the formalized certificate and the listing on the website www.watermark.standards.org.au

WaterMark Level 2

This level of certification is commonly referred to as Type Test certification and requires design evaluation and independent testing to determine product compliance with the relevant standard identified as applicable in the WMCS. The certification does not include an assessment and ongoing surveillance of the production processes or quality system in place. The certificate would have duration of three years and may be renewed at expiry.

Following successful evaluation the applicant is issued with a formal licence to use the WaterMark certification logo on the products along with a formalized certificate of conformity and allocated certification number which is traceable to the product and certificate holder by way of the formalized certificate and the listing on the website www.watermark.standards.org.au
