BPMA calls for Regulation 4 Compliance Clarification

The BPMA (British Pump Manufacturers Association) is encouraging M&E consultants and other water equipment specifiers to get fully up-to-speed with the Water Supply (Water Fittings Regulations 1999) with particular focus on the requirement of Regulation 4.

Promoting the efficient use of water, safeguarding water supply, setting legal requirements, and of course protecting public health is a top priority for the British Pump Manufacturers Association (BPMA), whilst ensuring a fair and level playing field for its members. Unfortunately, and for quite some time, The BPMA has reported receiving feedback from member companies that there has been a degree of misunderstanding in the water sector regarding certification for products for use in water supply. As such, it has been actively pushing for change in this sector by lobbying the UK Government and other interested parties.
