IWG granted STC for B737 UV water sterilization system


March 31, 2016 – International Water-Guard Industries (IWG-I) has announced that it has received a provisions-only Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from Transport Canada for the installation of a new upload ultra violet (UV) water sterilization system for the Boeing 737-600/700/800 family of aircraft.

The STC regulatory approval allows a modification to an aircraft’s existing type design in order to install systems, such as the water sterilization product, while maintaining airworthiness certification. While IWG-I holds a number of Transport Canada and FAA STCs for its business aviation products, this is its first for the commercial airline industry.

“The adoption of our UV sterilization technology will provide airlines with an easy-to-install system that offers a better flight experience for passengers along with improved water safety and operational efficiency”, said Steven Bis, general manager and SVP of International Water-Guard Industries.
