No. 439. These regulations were updated in 2007 and are set out in S.I. 122 of 2004.

 

Check monitoring

Used to regularly monitor the organoleptic and microbiology quality of the drinking water a check analysis suite  provides information on the effectiveness of water treatment and gives an indication as to whether the water intended for human consumption complies with the Drinking water regulations The parameters that are required to be analysed in a check monitor are listed below.
