CSA International announced a new program to test and certify products to the requirements of the new CAN/CSA B483 Drinking Water Treatment Systems standard. The certification program will be available to assist manufacturers in demonstrating compliance to the new 2009 Canadian Building Code and the new Quebec Plumbing Code which reference the CSA B483 standard.
Examples of new product certification offerings include water softener units, drinking fountains, under counter drinking water dispensing systems, plumbing fittings with integral water filtration systems, point of entry plumbed systems, household refrigerators with water filtration dispensers,
and other similar devices. In order to minimize redundant testing, CSA International will also recognize testing data for components independently certified by an accredited certification organization to the NSF/ANSI Drinking Water Treatment Units Standards as appropriate.
