About this manual

If you supply products regulated under the Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards Act 2005 you may need to register and label them.

The products currently regulated under the scheme are: showers, dishwashers, clothes washing machines, toilet equipment (including urinals), taps and flow controllers (registration of flow controllers is optional). Minimum water efficiency requirements are specified for toilets and washing machines.

This manual provides guidance for both new and existing users of the WELS product registration database.
