The California law AB 1953, a.k.a. the lead-free rule, will also require drinking water treatment units comply with its lead-free definition effective Jan. 1, 2010.
California Department of Public Health is currently writing a guidance memo
that states drinking
water treatment units must comply with the law’s lead-free definition, but that
certification for the drinking water treatment units is optional. The memo is
expected out sometime in late October.
Water Quality Association says certification is one way to show product
compliance. Another option is to have test reports or a complete wetted-parts
list that shows all components to be in compliance (i.e., all components
certified as compliant with AB 1953 and SB 1334).
