As a business it is your legal duty to ensure the systems you use or install satisfy the requirements of the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999.
These regulations set out the national requirements for the design, installation, materials and maintenance of water fixtures and fittings. The purpose of the regulations is to prevent waste, misuse, undue consumption, erroneous measurement and, above all, contamination of water supplies.
Your local water company is responsible to the Government for the enforcement of the regulations and they have the right to visit your premises and carry out checks to ensure your water fittings comply.
