Bottled water regulations vary around the world.
There are different definitions of natural mineral water and spring water in the UK and US, for example. Zenith Global has advised many clients on the different local regulations on bottled water and has managed the application process for accreditation of bottled waters around the world. This means you can operate in the knowledge that you are complying with the law.
Our unparalleled knowledge of the regulatory setting for bottled waters means we can assist you with your natural mineral water accreditations, licences for US export and understanding what the regulatory setting means for you in terms of brands, sources and labelling.
In many countries, a licence or permit is required for water extraction from both ground and surface water. Zenith Global’s team of water experts can manage the process of obtaining an abstraction licence as this can be complex. In-depth studies, with monitoring and testing, are required that often include detailed environmental and hydrogeological assessment.
In the UK, as water resources are put under pressure, there are sometimes opportunities for licence trading with adjacent water users who may not be using their full licence. Zenith Global can manage the negotiations and liaise with the regulator to ensure this process is as smooth as possible.
