WATER EFFICIENCY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (WEMS)
The purpose of SS577:2012 standard is to enable organizations to assess and account for their water usage, and to identify, plan and implement measures to achieve water savings through systematic management of water. The SS577:2012 standard includes a set of frameworks and guidelines, suggested tools and best practices for water users to adopt so as to improve water usage and water efficiency.
The Singapore Accreditation Council launched a new accreditation program for Water Efficiency Management System certification in 2013.
It specifies requirements applicable to water usage, including monitoring, measurement, documentation and reporting, design and procurement practices for equipment, systems, processes and personnel that contribute to water efficiency. The standard facilitates organizations in preparing their Water Efficiency Management Plan (WEMP).
