Compliance with Water Byelaws helps protect the health and well-being of everyone using the public supply in Scotland. 

They help protect: 

  • In the home - you, your family and visitors and neighbours – by protecting the water they may consume. 
  • Businesses - you, your employees and visitors to your sites – by protecting the water they may consume on your premises and therefore their health and safety.  

Ensuring your plumbing is installed, and used, to meet the requirements of the Water Byelaws will protect you, your business or organisation, from criminal prosecution, adverse publicity and potentially substantial fines.
