STeP Global Testing Protocols and Parameters

STeP or Partner: STeP
Country of focus: Global
Published date: January 2016

Brief description:

One of the primary goals of STeP is to support field testing of advanced sanitation technologies. To support testing of technologies by STeP, as well as by the broader sanitation community, we have created a global testing and protocols guide. The guide, developed in collaboration with partners, offers standards, test measures, and recommendations for assessing a full spectrum of operational and performance measures.

Key topics:

  • Standardized field test measurements to assess safety and performance
  • Measures for liquid, solids, emissions, sound, energy and operations
  • Testing parameters regulated by local or international standards
  • Parameters that impact user adoption
