(a)is bottled as specified in regulation 10; and

(b)is intended for consumption in its natural state.

(2) No person shall cause any bottle containing water and marked or labelled with the description “spring water” to be marked or labelled with–

(a)a trade description including the name of a locality, hamlet or place, unless that trade description refers to a water the spring of which is exploited at the place indicated by that description and is not misleading as regards the place of exploitation of the spring;

(b)a trade description that is different from the name of the spring or the place of its exploitation unless the place of exploitation or the name of the spring is also marked or labelled on the bottle, using letters at least one and a half times the height and width of the largest of the letters used for that trade description.

(b)the name of the spring; and

(c)in any case where the water has undergone an authorised ozone-enriched air oxidation technique, “water subjected to an authorised ozone-enriched air oxidation technique” which shall appear in proximity to the particulars referred to in sub-paragraphs (a) and (b).

(4) Where, paragraph (2)(b) would apply in relation to the labelling of a spring water to require an indication of the place of exploitation or the name of the spring in addition to a trade description–

(a)the same requirement shall also apply to any written advertisement for that spring water; and

(b)in any other advertisement, at least equivalent importance shall be given to the place of exploitation or the name of the spring as is given to the trade description.
