Abstract

These Regulations amend the European Union (Drinking Water) Regulations 2014 in the Schedules to transpose the provisions of Commission Directive (EU) 2015/1787 amending Annexes II and III to Council Directive 98/83/EC on the quality of water intended for human consumption. Annexes II and III of the Directive lay down the minimum requirements of the monitoring programmes for all water intended for human consumption and the specifications for the method of analysis of different parameters. Those specifications now require updating in the light of scientific and technical progress since the introduction of the original 1998 Directive.
