About the CCE area
Every PQS-prequalified CCE product has been given its own page. Each page includes detailed information on that product, including:
- Product data from the WHO PQS CCE website
- Resources for the product shared by TechNet members, including technical guidance from WHO, UNICEF, and other partners, installation and maintenance guides, training materials, and manufacturer brochures
- Videos on the product
- Feedback from TechNet members on the product
PQS manufacturers with a TechNet account can manage some of the information displayed on their product pages, for example by updating the product description, as well as adding product photos and videos.
Note: the CCE area features technical information available on the WHO PQS Catalogue website. Please refer to this website for official WHO guidance and the latest information on PQS products.
