Manufacturers: WaterSense Webinar and New Program Mark Guidelines

During the last quarter of 2016, EPA revised the WaterSense Program Mark Guidelines with new requirements for using the WaterSense label. Manufacturers must now include the WaterSense label on both print and online product specification sheets and continue to include the WaterSense label on product packaging for any models certified to meet a WaterSense specification. You are also strongly encouraged to use the WaterSense label anytime these products appear on your company websites or product advertising. If packaging contains both WaterSense labeled and non-WaterSense labeled products, the packaging must bear the WaterSense label and clearly indicate which items within the package have earned the WaterSense label.

Additionally, EPA also issued new clarifications for existing WaterSense product specifications and certification and labeling processes, which include the requirement to include the WaterSense label on product specification sheets. This change is intended to address concerns that the definition of "product packaging" included in Version 2.1 of the WaterSense Product Certification System was too broad and misaligned with the industry-used definition. These clarifications are incorporated into the latest Product and Labeling Clarifications spreadsheet (XLSX) and are effective immediately.

For an in-depth look at product labeling updates, annual reporting forms, and recently released technical clarifications, EPA invites you to join the Manufacturer Partner Webinar at 2:00 p.m. Eastern on Thursday, February 2, 2017.
