Mission

European Drinking Water (EDW) is an alliance of European trade associations (see "Member associations") representing industries which are involved with supply products or materials that are used in drinking water applications and connected to municipal drinking water supplies within the European Union (EU).

The mission of the EDW is to address the current absence of harmonisation of regulatory requirements within the EU, for suitability of products and materials that are used in applications involving contact with drinking water.

The objective is to achieve an EU harmonized scheme for requirements and conformity assessment of products and materials that are used in drinking water applications, which will be accepted in all EU Member States.
