Drinking Water Audits
RMP Systems undertake independent drinking water audits in Australia. Audits are based on legislation including;
- Safe Drinking Act 2003
- Australia Drinking Water Guidelines (2011)
- Safe Drinking Water Regulations (2015)
Our Auditors are certified under the globally recognised Exemplar Global Incorporated Water Quality Management Systems auditor certification scheme (formerly known as RABQSA).
Legislation requires drinking water suppliers and water storage managers to prepare, implement and review risk management plans for their water supply systems. They must have their risk management plan audited by an independent auditor when asked to by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) in their state.
This evaluation and audit of how drinking water quality is being managed is an element of the Framework. Key components of interstate and international legislation include:
- registration of drinking water provider
- implementation of risk management plan including approved monitoring programs and incident notification protocols
- regular audits and inspections of drinking water provider
- reporting of results to DHHS
- provision of results to consumers on request.
Water agencies must obtain approval from DHHS to use a certified auditor to audit their risk management plan. A list of certified auditors can be found on the Exemplar Global website.
