WQA/ASPE/ANSI S-803 (2017): Sustainable Drinking Water Treatment Systems
Electronic Download (PDF)
WQA/ASPE/ANSI S-803 (2017): Sustainable Drinking Water Treatment Systems is an American National Standard that will help manufacturers establish market leadership by certifying product sustainability via a program of monitoring and improvement throughout all phases of the product life-cycle. It evaluates the sustainability of these systems based on core attributes common to all products types (health and safety, product design, emissions and consumptions, supplier engagement, and end-of-life), as well as product type specific requirements (modules) based on the specific environmental impacts of each product category type included in the scope of the standard. The scope of S-803 includes drinking water filter products that utilize activated carbon, UV systems, dispensers/fountains, cation exchange softeners and other treatment systems that utilize ion exchange resins. S-803 is a complementary standard to WQA/ASPE/ANSI S-802 (2017): Sustainable Water Treatment Media. Activated carbon systems and systems that utilize ion exchange resins get maximum credit towards conformance with this standard if that treatment media is certified to WQA/ASPE/ANSI S-802.
