Abstract

These Regulations supplement Part VIA of the Water (Scotland) Act 1980,amend, for a limited period, the Water Supply (Water Quality) (Scotland) Regulations 1990 and, on 25 December 2003, revoke and replace those Regulations. They are primarily concerned with the quality of water supplied in Scotland for drinking, washing, cooking and food preparation, and for food production, and with arrangements for the publication of information about water quality. The Regulations are directed at the achievement of the objective set out in Article 2 of Council Directive 98/83/EC, namely, to protect human health from the adverse effects of any contamination of water intended for human consumption by ensuring that it is wholesome and clean. In particular, effect is given in Part III of the Regulations to Articles 4 and 5 of the 1998 Directive which relate to the quality of water intended for human consumption and, in Part V, to Article 7 (monitoring) of that Directive.
