Exemplar Global DW Australia: Framework for Management of Drinking Water Quality


Exemplar Global (formerly RABQSA International) has developed a national Water Quality
Management Systems Auditor Certification Scheme that will be applicable for water quality
audits around Australia.

This has been developed in collaboration with:
• Department of Health and Human Services (Victoria)
• Department of Energy and Water Supply (Queensland)
• Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (New South Wales)
• Department of Health (Western Australia)
• Department of Health (South Australia)
• Water Services Association of Australia
• Victorian Water Industry Association

Certification under this scheme is available in the grades of WQMS Auditor and Lead WQMS Auditor and in the scopes of Drinking Water and Recycled Water Quality. The recycled water scope will progressively be required for auditors seeking approval to conduct regulatory audits of recycled water quality management plans in most states and territories.

The scheme certification requirements are managed by Exemplar Global. To be certified under this scheme, individuals must demonstrate their knowledge and competency based skills assessments meet the requirements of the certification
