1 April 1998.

These Regulations prescribe a system for classifying the quality of inland waters, coastal waters and relevant territorial waters with a view to reducing the pollution of those waters by the dangerous substances listed in the Schedules to the Regulations (regs. 2 and 3 and Schedules 1 and 2). Those substances are substances within List II of Council Directive 76/464/EC which deals with pollution caused by certain dangerous substances discharged into the aquatic environment. The regulations are made in order to establish water quality objectives for those substances for the purposes of Article 7 of the Directive relative to pollution reduction programmes. The Scottish Environment Protection Agency is required by the Regulations to sample waters classified under the Regulations and to analyse those samples so as to monitor the effect on those waters of discharges containing the dangerous substances in question, and to determine the extent of any pollution by those substances and compliance with the requirements for the relevant classification (reg. 4). Section 30C of the Control of Pollution Act 1974 is modified so that the Secretary of State is placed under a duty immediately to classify under the Regulations all inland waters, coastal waters and relevant territorial waters; and reviews and consultation requirements are disapplied (reg. 5).
