Covered products shall include any of the following: point-of-entry (POE) drinking water systems; plumbed-in, faucet-mounted, or other point-of-use (POU) systems; batch systems/devices not connected to the plumbing system; and replacement components for drinking water treatment systems. This standard will be applicable globally, and may be applied to the certification of applicable products by any qualified certification body.

This standard includes attributes, criteria and metrics that will be used to assess the sustainable management practices and performance of manufacturers, as well as component and material suppliers, that are seeking to obtain certification to applicable WQA sustainable product standards. Note that certification to this standard is not available (for either products or facilities), as this standard was developed exclusively as a prerequisite to product certification standards developed for certification under ISO 17065.
