The secret to keeping your water supply safe
Compliance is an essential part of supplying water fittings in the UK, and for connection to the water supply. This seminar looks at the vital roles and relationships that keep our water supply safe. At the Bathroom Manufacturers Association, it has been at the heart of our strategy since 2019.
Members of the association spend considerable percentages of their budget ensuring they meet the exceptionally high standards required in the UK to protect the water supply from contamination by materials, or water being pulled into the system by backflow or back siphonage through negative pressure in the water system. The regulations require products to be of an appropriate standard and be suitable for the circumstances they are used for.
Therefore, preventing waste, misuse, undue consumption or contamination of water supply and erroneous measurement of water supplied. This is commonly referred to as ‘Regulation 4 complaint’ and is in reference to The Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 Paragraph 4 Requirements for Water Fittings, Paragraph 1.
Find out more about the relationship between manufacturers, water companies, DEFRA, the approval houses, specifiers, contractors, distributors, retailers, architects and installers, and how all these people play an important role in keeping our water supply safe.
This session is sponsored by The Bathroom Manufacturers Association and Geberit.
