Setting industry standards in irrigation
The National Measurement Institute is Australia’s peak measurement body responsible for biological, chemical, legal, physical and trade measurement. The purpose of the standard is to ensure that the pricing and distribution of goods are based on the highest levels of precision and product integrity.
In a rigorous process that takes up to five years, two of our products have been certified by the National Measurement Institute of Australia. The standard NMI 10-1 is specific to meters intended for the metering of water in full flowing pipes.
This standard is used for non-urban water, and is relevant to irrigation professionals and associated Water Authorities. Our Euromag meter is one of only four meters certified for non-urban use on the market; and the Sensus WP Dynamic Meter is the only water meter of its kind approved by the NMI for non-urban use. We’re proud to assert our product’s compliance with a standard that showcases their functional and technical capabilities on the field.

Queensland Water Meter Standard for Non-urban Metering
According to the Queensland Interim Water Meter Standard for Non-urban metering, all water meters should comply with National Measurement standards as accredited products become available.
The interim standard currently states that if a suitable pattern approved meter is not available at the time of installation, then a non pattern approved meter can be installed.
As Bermad has begun the shift to products that are NMI certified, all government water meters should be replaced with the newly available product. The standard reads that when there is a sufficient supply of pattern approved meters, the intention is that current interim standard will be withdrawn, and all meters in Queensland will comply with the National Standards thereafter.
This standard applies to the specification and installation of mechanical and electronic water meters in Queensland.
Better. Best. Bermad.
Where applicable, Bermad products are manufactured according to the Australian AS5081 Standard, Watermark Standards, Fire & Building Certifications and Quality Marks.
