This course covers the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999 (England and Wales) and the Water Byelaws 2004 (Scotland) and meets the requirements of WRAS (the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) of which the majority of the UK water companies are members. There are two distinct manuals, one for England/Wales and one for Scotland, as some regulations differ north of the border.

The course is for anyone requiring an understanding of water regulations/water byelaws. In particular those wishing to become approved plumbers/contractors. Successful candidates are encouraged to join the WIAPS – the Water Industry’s Approved Plumbers Scheme.

Please note that other industry related qualifications may be required to join these schemes.
