ASSE International is forming a working group for the development of ASSE Series 21000, Professional Qualifications for Rainwater Catchment System Designers, Installers and Inspectors.

The new professional qualifications standard will identify the minimum level of knowledge required to install, design and inspect rainwater catchment systems for a variety of plumbing and/or irrigation applications. Because there is no consensus standard setting the minimum training requirements for rainwater catchment professionals, this standard will level qualifications and raise the bar for professionals.
