The Private Water Supplies (Scotland) Regulations 2006

These are Scotland's main Regulations governing the quality of water supplied by private water supplies. These Regulations supplement the Water (Scotland) Act 1980 and transpose the requirements of the European Council Directive 98/83/EC on the quality of water intended for human consumption.

These Regulations supersede the 1992 Regulations, the Private Water Supplies (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 1998(a) and regulation 39(1)(c) of the Water Supply (Water Quality) Scotland Regulations 2001(b).

The Regulations may be found using this link for Private Water Supply Regulations 2006.
