Abstract

The Regulations specify requirements which must be satisfied before an undertaking given by a water company may be accepted by the relevant enforcement authority under section 19(1)(b) of the Water Industry Act 1991 for the purposes of ensuring compliance with requirements of Directive 80/778/EC (reg. 2). The Regulations prescribe: (a) how applications in connection with such undertakings are to be made to the relevant enforcement authority (reg. 3); (b) what must be specified in such undertakings (reg. 4);(c) the conditions for acceptance of such undertakings (regulation 5);(d) what happens if those conditions cease to be satisfied (reg. 6); and (e) transitional provisions in relation to existing undertakings (reg. 7). The Regulations also amend section 19(1)(b) of the Water Industry Act 1991 to reflect the new requirements (reg. 8).
