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.
New registration arrangements commenced on 22 January 2013. WELS registration is now on an annual cycle with all models expiring on 22 January each year.
This manual provides guidance for both new and existing users of the WELS product registration database on renewing product registrations.
