WRc Approved™  is a voluntary 'fitness for purpose' certification scheme conducted by WRc plc (Water Research centre) to help manufacturers demonstrate the performance of their products and services. Quality, performance and installation issues are all covered in the assessment of the product or service, which can be against an existing standard or, for novel products WRc can use its extensive knowledge of the UK and International Water Industry to develop appropriate requirements.

WRc Approved™ certification is of value to both UK and International companies; current approvals include products from Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Holland, Japan, New Zealand, UK and USA.
