SCHEDULE 2Requirements for water bottled and labelled as “spring water” and bottled drinking water

PART 1Requirements for water bottled and labelled as “spring water” and bottled drinking water

Water bottled and labelled as “spring water” and bottled drinking water meet the requirements of this Schedule if—

(a)in relation to each of the parameters specified in the first column of the tables in Part 2 (microbiological parameters) and Part 3 (chemical parameters), it does not contain the parameter at a concentration or value exceeding the concentration or value specified for that parameter in the second column of the relevant table—

(i)as measured by reference to the unit of measurement specified in the third column of the relevant table, and

(ii)as read, in the case of the table in Part 3, with any further provision relating to the parameter, or concentration or value for the parameter, specified in the fourth column of the table,

(b)in relation to each of the parameters specified in the first column of the table in Part 4 (radioactive substances), it does not contain the parameter at an activity concentration or value exceeding the activity concentration or value specified for that parameter in the second column of the relevant table as measured by reference to the unit of measurement specified in the third column of the table,

(c)it does not contain (disregarding any parameters covered by sub-paragraphs (a) and (b)), any micro-organism, parasite or any other property, element or substance at a concentration or value that would constitute a potential danger to human health, and

(d)it does not contain any substance (whether or not a parameter) at a concentration or value that, in conjunction with any other property, element, substance or organism it contains (whether or not a parameter), would constitute a potential danger to human health.
