Overview

Food Standards Scotland (FSS) would welcome your comments on the draft Natural Mineral Water, Spring Water and Bottled Drinking Water (Scotland) Amendment Regulations 2017 (see Annex B) and the partial Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment (BRIA - see Annex C).

The purpose of the draft Scottish Statutory Instrument is to transpose the requirements of Commision Directive (EU) 2015/1787 in relation to bottled drinking water which is marketed as spring water or bottled drinking water. The Directive amends Annex II to Directive 98/83/EC on the quality of drinking water, removing the need for "check monitoring" and "audit monitoring" by local authorities.

Please see the documents attached below for full details of our consultation.

We would appreciate it if you could then respond using the online questionnaire.

Why We Are Consulting

We want to provide stakeholders with an opportunity to comment on the draft Scottish Regulations which are based on the preferred option for the transposition of Commission Directive (EU) 2015/1787 and the associated partial BRIA.

What Happens Next

Consultation responses will be analysed and feedback will be provided following the consultation.
