Ensure the quality of products, processes and services in the market
The proliferation of low-quality products hampers water utilities, suppliers, manufacturers, system integrators and end-users worldwide. In many areas, there is no indication of quality let alone any regulation regarding the minimum quality and performance requirements of a product, process or service. Beyond making purchase decisions complicated and time-consuming, this lack of standards increases the chance of choosing a low-quality product, which may increase the probability of project failure. With standard development, existing guidelines / regulations would not call for government organisations or private companies calling for tenders to specify their own minimum requirements.
Standards and certification provide common terminology. Without this, it is difficult to evaluate and compare products, leaving no common ground for innovation. In addition, without standards, guidelines and technical requirements that ensure quality, safety and reliability, consumers are more likely to keep using existing brands rather than trying new ones.
