AWS Standard Review and Revision
AWS is undertaking a review and revision of the International Water Stewardship Standard V2.0 (commonly known as the AWS Standard). The primary aims of the AWS Standard Review and Revision are to:
- Improve the value proposition and user experience for sites;
- Enable more accurate and consistent auditability, and;
- Enhance the Standard’s contribution to AWS’s vision, mission and organisational strategy.
This process will be carried out according to the AWS Standards Development and Revision Procedure and ISEAL’s Standard-Setting Code of Good Practice. Led by the AWS Technical Committee and facilitated by the AWS Secretariat, the process began in early 2023 with the aim to publish the revised AWS Standard V3.0 on World Water Day (22 March) 2025.
