Potable water

In the EU, there is no legislation covering the use of ion exchange resins and adsorbents in potable water production.

Some covering resins are employed for direct treatment of water supplies into the home and others for covering treatments at municipal waterworks separately.  Not all countries have their own specific regulations, but recognise compliance with, or approval by, other country regulations.  See section National legislation for further details.

SOIA continues to promote a European regulatory approach to synthetic resins and adsorbents used in the production of potable water; in municipal, commercial and domestic applications.
