Incorporating the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 and the Water Byelaws 2000, Scotland.
For the most part, the Regulations are a repeat of some of the former Byelaws which were applied in England and Wales and were applied in Scotland. Installers and users of water fittings must not cause or permit waste, misuse, undue consumption or contamination of the supply of wholesome water. The differences in the Regulations
are noticeable in the sections on notification, backflow prevention and flushing of WCs.

There is also a general move towards conservation of water The Regulations and the Schedules to the Regulations are published with the permission of the DETR.The DETRformal Guidance to the Regulations and the Schedules, the 'G' clauses, are also published in this Guide and also with the permission of the DETR.

Much will be found to be familiar about the Water Supply Industry 'Recommendations and Comments' ('R' clauses) as many have been extracted from the earlier publication, the 'Water Supply Byelaws Guide'. Newguidance will be found mostly in the sections on backflow prevention and flushing of WCs.

The predecessor 'Water Byelaws Guide' proved to be of inestimable value to those designing fittings, making fittings and the installing and the controlling of the installation of water fittings. In the light of enhanced enforcement procedures this new Guide, produced by Laurie Young,a consulting engineer specialising in water services and Graham Mays, the former manager of the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme on behalf of, and to the requirements and approval of, the Water Supply Industry, should prove, with its improved illustrations and layout, of even more use and help to its readers than the earlier book.

References are made in the Guide to European Standards (ENs),and British Standards (BSs). Readers should be aware that a European Standard is in preparation, EN806 , Parts 1 to 5 which refers to plumbing installations in buildings.

References to approved fittings and appliances and any specific installation instructions may be found in the 'Water Fittings and Materials Directory' published by the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme.
