Components that are not part of the permanent installation belong under the food legislation
Drinking water is regarded as food. The piping systems and components for tap water, distribution and sewerage are part of the permanent installation in a house and are closely connected to a number of components that are not covered by the scheme “Godkendt til drikkevand” (approved for drinking water). These components belong under the food legislation. Examples are machines and appliances for treatment of drinking water such as ice cube machines, water coolers, filters, etc.
