Sun-Mar Australian Standards
If you are building a new home we recommend you purchase one of our Sun-Mar AS1546.2 certified composting toilets. A Development Application (D.A.) will only be approved by your local council if the on-site treatment system is approved by the relevant state authority. For a composting toilet, approval at a state level now requires the system to be certified to New Zealand and Australian Standards AS1546.2. Be aware that other composting toilet manufacturers have not received this Australian Standards certification. Once their current state approvals lapse they will not be able to renew. To make sure you do not get caught out, please ask the manufacturer for their state approval and Aus Standards certification.
