Fine to Flush Certified Products   

 

Although there has been an increase in products being labelled ‘Do Not Flush’, there are many wipes on the market labelled ‘Flushable’ which do not break down quickly when they enter the sewer system, and which would not pass the stringent tests which meet the standard to receive the ‘Fine to Flush’ symbol. The labelling of these products can cause confusion amongst consumers, increasing the problem of sewer blockages.

WRc has long been at the forefront of research into wet wipes and their impact on water networks and is proud to be the designated testing facility for all products wishing to gain ‘Fine to Flush’ certification. Manufacturers can have their wipes tested by WRc, the Swindon-based independent technical experts who developed the specifications for flushability standards in conjunction with Water UK. If they pass the tests, the wipes manufacturers will receive the ‘Fine to Flush’ symbol from WRc.

Manufacturers and product developers can contact WRc for further information and to discuss the most appropriate approaches to testing products.
