Overview of course

The Water Fittings Regulations and Scottish Water Byelaws are designed to prevent misuse, waste, undue consumption or erroneous measurement of water and crucially to prevent contamination of drinking water.  They are a national requirement for the design, installation, operation and maintenance of plumbing systems, water fittings and water-using appliances.  They replaced the former local Water Supply Byelaws which was administered by each water supplier for similar purposes for many years.

The 1 day Water Regulations course and assessment covers the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 (England and Wales) and meets requirements of the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS).  This course is aimed at anyone wishing to understand and implement the Water Regulations competently and in particular those wishing to become approved plumbers / contractors.

This course is being run at West Suffolk College, Milburn Centre on Monday 21 January 2019.  To book please contact us on 01284 716246 or via email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
