If you are not familiar with the use of cookies on websites, or want to know how this website uses them before giving consent, please click here to read on before continuing to use this website, because continuing to use it implies you consent to this website's use of any cookie you do not block.

What are cookies? They're small text files that are saved by a website onto each of its visitors' computers. That same website can then read and modify them at will.
Why use them? They allow a website to recognize you. Not personally, usually, but, for example, your username, preferences, and/or shopping basket contents.
Why ask for consent? A European directive requires websites now ask visitors for consent before setting cookies, prompted in part by concerns about the online tracking of individuals and the use of spyware. The majority of cookies are well-intentioned, but the directive intends to help visitors make an informed choice regarding them.
What cookies will The Water Label use? If you choose to set any preferences, we will create a persistent cookie to remember them. Should you need to sign in to a section of the website, we will create a temporary cookie to remember you've signed in. A third party, statcounter.com, will create a persistent cookie to aid our collection of visitor statistics – that is, to identify if a page load is coming from a new visitor or a returning visitor (and nothing more than that).
What if I don't consent? That's okay. If this is your first visit, we haven't set any cookies yet. If you don't want us to set any cookies whatsoever, check your browser's Help section now for instructions on blocking them. If it's only third-party cookies you don't want, you can set that as a preference here: Do not set third-party cookies.

The Scheme

Registration

Registrations for all listed products will last for one year from the date of acceptance of application, provided that the characteristics of the product are not changed during the one year period. If the characteristics have changed for any reason then the company in question must submit a new application and listing and undergo a new procedure.

If Government implements new regulation or legislation resulting in amendments to the Scheme criteria, The Water Label Company will inform the applicant of the listed product. The Water Label Company will also inform the applicant of pending changes to the criteria and the transition period for updating the Scheme database and website together with revised test criteria.

The Water Label Company will not offer any rebate for any fees paid if the applicant elects not to amend the product to ensure it conforms to the new regulation/legislation.

However, if a new Declaration of Conformity is provided endorsing that the listed product conforms to the criteria, the registration will be allowed to continue until it expires.

Cancellation

The Water Label Company retains the right to cancel or suspend any listing of a product, which carries the water label.

If a company does not adhere to the rules and regulations of the Scheme, or if The Water Label Company has proven that the information given at the application stage is inaccurate, The Water Label Company retains the right to cancel or suspend the product listing.

The Water Label Company also retains the right to cancel or suspend a product listing where the characteristics of the product have been amended but the company has failed to notify The Water Label Company or applied for a new application.

The Water Label design is a Registered Community design of The Water Label Company Limited, Company Registration No. 07906301
