Final Specifications for Irrigation Certification Programs

EPA established specifications on October 27, 2006, to recognize certification programs for irrigation professionals in three areas: system design, installation and maintenance, and system auditing. Any certification program that meets the criteria outlined in the specification for one of these areas will be eligible for the WaterSense label.

For more information about the certification programs for irrigation professionals specification process, including the draft specifications, the public response document, and EPA's response to the public comments, please visit the Certification Programs for Irrigation Professionals Specifications Background Materials page.

Note: On September 19, 2013, WaterSense released a draft labeling system, draft specifications, and supporting documentation that outline potential changes to the current certification programs for irrigation professionals specifications.
