Australian Water Recycling Centre of Excellence

To protect the health of people and the environment, water recycling treatment technologies need to meet specified performance targets.

The Australian Water Recycling Centre of Excellence developed a national approach to validating treatment technologies against the Australian guidelines for water recycling.

The approach proposed, known as the National Validation Framework, was documented in 12 reports.


What we did

We summarised the 12 reports into 12 plain-English documents, each 2 pages long.

We also copyedited them and proofread them after they had been laid out by the client.

Read the National Validation Framework summaries.
