Drinking Water


The requirements of the Directive concerning information to the public and reporting are related to:

  • Exemptions of the application of the Directive; 
  • Meeting quality standards as set in Annex I of the Directive and monitoring requirements;
  • Remedial action and restriction in use in case of failure to meet the parametric values set;
  • Information provided by the Member States to the population in case they have recourse to derogations.

The reporting exercise has to take into account the requirements of Commission Decision of 25 July 1995 amending Decision 92/446/EEC of 27 July 1992 concerning questionnaires relating to directive in the water sector, namely Section VII Outline Questionnaire for Directive 80/778/EEC (old Drinking Water Directive).
