Education & Audit Committee

This Committee encourages membership from each of the National Associations. Its mandate is to ensure that WE training courses and audits are designed, promoted, maintained and carried out in line with the WE Guidelines for Good Hygiene Practices.

The Committee promotes the highest standards of quality and hygiene throughout the European water dispenser industry through Bottling Plant and Distributor/Operator audits, based on WE Guidelines for Good Hygiene Practices.

The audits are undertaken by internationally recognised and certified agencies. The Committee ensures that the WE Codes comply with and incorporate the requirements of all relevant EU Directives, creating the necessary Check Lists and supporting the Members to successfully pass the third-party inspections.
