First Defense OGS Verified by ISO 14034 Standard

First Defense® is the first stormwater separator to be verified through new ISO 14034 standard in Canada.

The First Defense® oil grit separator (OGS) is the first stormwater treatment separator to be verified through the new ISO 14034 standard which satisfies the Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) requirement in Canada.

The First Defense® hydrodynamic separator currently has the highest approved flow rates in the United States as verified by the New Jersey Corporation for Advanced Technology, (NJCAT) and as certified by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, (NJDEP).

We look forward to expanding our offering of a best-in-class system to our Canadian market. 

What makes this verification unique is that the test lab, Good Harbour Laboratory, is ISO 17020 compliant, as is the verifier, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA).
