The condition for drinking water of high quality is correct and well-functioning water installations
Pipes and components for drinking water are subject to especially strict environmental requirements in order to ensure drinking water of high quality. The functioning and the service life of the pipes and components are also important issues.
When it comes to drinking water Denmark is among the strictest countries in the world. Consequently, in 2013, the Danish Energy Agency introduced a new approval scheme, ”Godkendt til drikkevand” (approved for drinking water), in order to ensure that components in permanent installations do not release substances to the drinking water that are hazardous to health. In the other Nordic countries strict requirements for components for drinking water are also applicable.
