Updates

If you're a provider, here are important updates about your role in the building and developing processes.

What you need to know

Updated WSAA Sewerage Code

The WSA 02-2002-2.2 Sewerage Code of Australia Sydney Water edition version 4 (2017) is now available for use and can be purchased from the Water Services Association of Australia.

Key changes:

  •  inclusion of requirements from Sydney Water's Technical Specification for Leak Tight Sewer Systems
  •  design documents need to include sufficient details so all items can be constructed or procured from the market without further interpretation by the constructor.
Users should familiarise themselves with the whole code document.
We always welcome your feedback and enquiries about our engineering standards. Contact us at standards@sydneywater.com.au.
 

Criteria you must meet

To maintain your listing as a Sydney Water provider, you must continue to meet the following criteria (and any other criteria we may apply).

You must:
  • have current Third Party certification by an independent JAS/ANZ registered certification company to AS/NZS ISO 9001 of a documented Quality Management System (QMS) that includes processes to address Sydney Water's requirements for a Product Specific Quality Plan (PSQP). The QMS must address all warranties, activities and services that relate to the provider 
  • demonstrate an ability to plan and implement safety and environmental requirements
  • show satisfactory, ongoing performance after periodic reviews by Sydney Water
  • maintain appropriately trained key personnel
  • complete a minimum of two jobs each year
  • have appropriate and current insurances for the category your company is listed for
  • conform to our codes, instructions, Developer Works Deed (Standard Terms) and Business Ethics guide
  • ensure your company is not in voluntary administration, receivership or similar.


If your company fails to maintain these criteria, we'll consider removing it from our list.

We're not currently accepting applications. When we call for applications, this will be communicated through our website and other appropriate channels.

If you're a provider needing training and assessment look at our Provider Training Matrix for the units of competency you must attain.

All listed providers must be aware of and understand our Confined space safety procedure.

Note: Our Confined space safety procedure is a guide only. As a provider, you must develop your own safety management plans and safe work method statements under the Work Health & Safety Regulations 2011 (NSW).
