CSA International announces new certification program for Drinking Water Treatment Systems

    TORONTO, Aug. 22 /CNW/ - CSA International, a leading certification and
testing organization, today announces a newly created program to test and
certify products to the requirements of the new CAN/CSA B483 Drinking Water
Treatment Systems standard. Effective today, this 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.
    "CSA International holds the number one market share in plumbing
certification in the U.S. and Canada and we have more than 30 years of
expertise in this product area," says Randall W. Luecke, President, CSA
International. "This new program extends our service offering portfolio and
provides plumbing manufacturers with the CSA International expertise they have
come to rely on as they look to demonstrate compliance to plumbing standards
for drinking water treatment components and complete systems."
    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.
