This document invites comments on our proposal to modify condition R of the appointment of water undertakers. The proposed modification will remove the prohibition to sell or otherwise make available water or any other assets to a related licensed water supplier.
Under section 13 of the Water Industry Act 1991 (WIA91), we are able to modify the conditions of a company’s appointment if it agrees to the modification we are proposing to make.
This document and the attached appendix is a Notice under section 13 of the WIA91
This document also invites comments on our proposal to modify condition 7 of the licence of licensed water suppliers. The proposed modification will allow licensees to carry out relevant activities in the area of a related water undertaker.
Under section 17J of the Water Industry Act 1991, we are able to modify the standard licence conditions of the Water Supply Licence (WSL) if no licensee has objected or those who have objected represent less than 20% by volume of water supplied by all licensees in a 12 month period prior to issuing the Notice.
