This consultation invites comments on our proposal to modify various conditions of all undertakers’ appointments (licences). The intention is to simplify and modernise the licence conditions, while maintaining the protections for customers and the balance of risk for companies. We have been working with the sector to identify where the licence can be simplified and streamlined, and this is a package of changes which we would like to make to all licences as a step towards modernising licences.
Under section 13 of the Water Industry Act 1991 (WIA91), we are able to modify the conditions of a company’s licence if it agrees to the changes we are proposing to make.
We invite stakeholders to comment on our proposed modifications by 19 October 2018. Companies should also indicate their acceptance or otherwise of the proposed modification by this date. You can email your responses to [email protected] or post them to:
