The government has agreed to extend the current water byelaws for two years. The recommendation from the Water Regulations Advisory Committee will allow time for the committee to develop proposals for updated regulations which would take account of developing technologies.

The advisory committee, whose remit is to advise the secretary of state for the Environment on the technical requirements for plumbing installations and fittings for the new Water Regulations which will replace water byelaws, recommended that the byelaws be extended until 30 September 1998.

The committee hopes to make sufficient progress on the regulations over the next twelve months so that it can issue a consultation paper on its proposals in the spring of 1997 before submitting them to environment secretary John Gummer.
