WE Point of Use Code registered by European Commission

November 30, 2016

The WE POU Guidelines now have been approved by European Commission and all Member States.  These Guidelines are the commitment of Watercoolers Europe and the industry to health and consumer safety and all WE Members should comply with them.

Whilst these are Guidelines are not mandatory as a Directive, the implication is that regulatory bodies in EU countries have a reference on how to prove and judge the safety of POU watercoolers.  It also means that individual countries will not have to create their own code, since this European code has been accepted by all Member States.

The new approved Guidelines will be forwarded to the Chairpersons of National Associations to be distributed to their Members accordingly and will be available on the WE Website in the Members’ area.
