Verra has inactivated this methodology in accordance with Section 5 of the VCS Methodology Development and Review Process v4.3 (PDF), given that no projects using the methodology have been registered within five years of the last update or review. See the announcement, Verra Conducts Quality Review of VCS Methodologies, Inactivates 10 with Low or No Use, for more details. The grace period for listed projects to complete validation is six months in accordance with Section 3.21.3 of the VCS Standard v4.5 (PDF).

CDM small-scale methodology AMS-II.M applies to project activities that permanently replace baseline water flow devices (eg, showerheads, faucets) with low-flow hot water savings devices in residential buildings. This methodology revision expands the applicability of AMS-II.M to allow projects to occur in non-residential buildings and to include installation of inline devices which do not permanently replace baseline devices.

This revision also provides alternative methods for monitoring parameters and quantifying emission reductions. Specifically, this revision allows for the use of default factors for the estimation of certain parameters as an alternative to direct measurement.
