Hansgrohe has an RIBA approved core curriculum CPD about the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) designed to share information about the Regulations and the importance of compliance to ensure successful project specifications.

When installing any product that carries or delivers water from the main supply it is a legal requirement that it complies with Regulation 4 of the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations. WRAS Product Approval is the best way to demonstrate compliance as it is awarded by representatives of the water suppliers who enforce the Regulations and is therefore accepted by every water supplier in the UK.

Hansgrohe has over 800 WRAS approved products across a wide range of collections, award-winning designs and price-points. This impressive figure represents an investment of over £2m and is more than double the number of approvals compared with the next closest bathroom fittings manufacturer operating in the UK market.

The ‘Why WRAS’ CPD also explores the risk of non-compliance with the Regulations which can have far reaching implications across all the stakeholders involved throughout each of the project phases. The Regulations apply to all commercial buildings such as hotels, large housing projects and offices.
