Step2:Approval for Products used by water companies
DWI have transitioned from our forms based application process, to our online portal. Please use the portal for all applications, except for change applications (for the time being). Note, we are aware that some applicants are not seeing all their products when logging into the portal. A fix is being worked on, but if you cannot see your product and wish to submit a reapproval, please do so manually by emailing the application for to Reg31.Enquiries@defra.gov.uk.
Follow this guidance on registering to use it. If you have ever held an approval, please contact us for the known facts that we already have set up for your organisation.
