PUB launched the ABC Waters Certification on 1 July 2010 to provide recognition to public agencies and private developers who embrace the ABC Waters concept, and incorporate ABC Waters Design Features in their developments. Besides providing recognition, the scheme ensures that the design features incorporated within the developments achieve a minimum design standard. A new category added on top of the current tier is known as the ABC Waters Certified (Gold). Introduced in August 2017, this is the highest accolade for the certification to recognise entries of exceptional standards.

Currently, there are two categories:

  • ABC Waters Certified 
  • ABC Water Certified (Gold)​
Validity of Certification

The Certification has a 3-year validity. Upon expiry, a re-validation of the Certification can be carried out.

Benefits of ABC Waters Certification

Under this scheme, public agencies and private developers of ABC waters certified projects are allowed to make use of the ABC Waters logo to promote their developments as ‘ABC Waters certified’.

Application for ABC Waters Certification is open throughout the year. Developers of completed projects, projects under construction and projects under design stage can apply for their developments to be certified. No assessment fee is charged for the certification.
