WEEKLY EDITION May 17, 2017 Manufacturer Input Requested on New Standards for Non - sewered Waste Systems I f your company manufactures non - sewered waste systems, we need your input by MAY 24, 2017 ! In June 2016 the PSAI became involved with ISO Project Committee 305 in order to help address the open defecation practices in many countries. ISO/PC 305 is develop ing an international standard on non - sewered sanitation systems (NSSS). A working draft is currently under development. Association Insight has carried extensive articles in the past on the nature of the project (see coverage from June 29 , August 24 , and N ovember 9 ). The team is now at the point of "pressure testing" some of the ideas in the draft standard. NSSSs are intended to serve the vast majority of people worldwide who currently do not have access to safe sanitation. This includes a wide variety of geographical locations, ambient temperatures and pressure ranges. As this standard may be used for product certification, ISO/PC 305 is conducting a survey to collect input from NSSS manufacturers to ensure that some of the requirements are appropriate. TRAINING DEADLINES APPROACHING! Don't miss these upcoming opportunities: TODAY is the LAST DAY to register for the Preparing for Extremes in Portable Sanitation training course on May 23. May 23 is the LAST DAY to register for the PSAI Basic Service Technician Training Course on June 1.
