AWS Standard Review and Revision
In 2023, AWS will initiate the 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. It will begin in early 2023 and will be led by the AWS Technical Committee and facilitated by the AWS Secretariat, with the aim to publish the revised AWS Standard V3.0 on World Water Day (22 March) 2025.
Further information about the AWS Standard revision and revision process, timeline, and opportunities to get involved will be published here in the coming weeks. In the meantime, for any enquiries, please contact Tyler Farrow, Standards Manager, using the contact form below.
