PlasticsEurope's feedback on the Commission Roadmap on the Revision of the Drinking Water Directive
PlasticsEurope supports the Commission ongoing work on the revision of the of the “Drinking Water Directive” (DWD) and welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Commission consultation on the roadmap on the revision of the Drinking Water Directive.
As members of EDW -the European Drinking Water Alliance - PlasticsEurope is fully in line with the input provided by the latter in response to the consultation on the Commission Roadmap on the Revision of the Drinking Water Directive.
In line with the EDW, PlasticsEurope recommends that Article 10 of the DWD empowers the Commission to enact binding provisions on the safety of materials in contact with drinking water. These legally binding measures would have the effect to ensure that all European citizens benefit from the same level of human health protection. Also, they would progressively lead to the development of a EU-wide harmonized list of substances allowed in the production of materials and products in contact with drinking water.
