ISO 30500 CERTIFICATION READINESS ASSESSMENT

Ensures that your systems are safe for human health and the environment

WHAT IS ISO 30500 CERTIFICATION READINESS ASSESSMENT?

ISO 30500:2018, a standard for prefabricated non-sewered sanitation systems, is set to become the marquee performance standard for manufacturers to ensure that their systems are safe for human health and the environment. With continued country adoption, manufacturers will find increased value in attaining ISO 30500 certification to gain market penetration in this sector. 

TÜV SÜD offers a certification readiness assessment (CRA) that provides manufacturers with gap analysis of your prototype. The CRA will also provide you with clear and defined steps for improvement to ensure you understand how to refine your system to achieve certification to ISO 30500. 

WHY IS ISO 30500 CERTIFICATION READINESS ASSESSMENT IMPORTANT? 

Having a system that is certified to ISO 30500 will increase the market penetration of your product. As countries begin to adopt this new standard, ISO 30500 systems will be certified first.
Certifying your systems to ISO 30500 ensures that your systems are safe for human health and the environment, with a robust and reliable performance. Furthermore, it will give your systems global reach. This allows your systems to be developed at scale, and sold at mass. TÜV SÜD has global experts and test facilities worldwide to cater to all the testing needs required for ISO 30500. Our technical experts can help you identify where the critical points are for improvement of your system. 

TÜV SÜD HELPS TO ACHIEVE FULL POTENTIAL OF YOUR WATER TECHNOLOGIES

With TUV SUD’s expertise in testing, inspection, and certification, coupled with our expertise in ISO 30500 and other standards in the sanitation sector, we can assist you in developing a structure and plan towards getting your system certified. This thorough, step-wise approach reduce time to certification and potential risks of certification failure.

WHAT DO ISO 30500 CERTIFICATION READINESS ASSESSMENT INVOLVE?

The Certification Readiness Assessment (CRA) breaks the ISO 30500 into fundamental, easy to understand, building blocks. Within each block, there are different requirements that need to be met, ranging from document checks, controlled laboratory testing, as well as field testing. TÜV SÜD will work together with you to prepare your system for certification through an iterative step wise process.

At the preliminary study stage, a customized checklist for your system will be developed to provide a process of organizing and preparing existing documentation and testing reports in a manner as close as possible to certification. A gap analysis will be conducted based on the existing state of system development testing, providing a structured test plan to conduct further testing according to ISO 30500. Performance testing is then conducted, with recommendations and next steps towards improving your system to meet ISO 30500.
