What to do next on the road to “lead-free” plumbing?

Posted on: April 23rd, 2019 by Petra

PPI Group’s Management Committee has agreed on reviewing the “Lead in Drinking Water Position Paper” in particular being addressed:

  • the transition requirements and dealing with products already in the market place
  • a detailed explanation of what is meant by “wetted surface area” as required in the US
  • how this may affect different products available in the Australian market
  • Point of Sale requirements

All feedback will be collated and inserted into the document. This timing will enable the PPI Group to develop a comprehensive submission when the terms of reference for the Regulatory Impact Statement (RIS) and calls for submissions are made.
