Enforcement Policy

Our Enforcement Policy (EP) is in accordance with the Regulators’ Compliance Code and the regulatory principles required under the Legislative and Regulatory Reform Act 2006.  In developing this EP, we have also had regard to the Enforcement Policy of Defra, the Investigator’s Convention (2009) sponsored by the Government National Investigator’s Group and the revised Prosecutors’ Convention (2009).

It sets out the general principles and approach which Drinking Water Inspectors are expected to follow.  All DWI staff who take enforcement decisions are required to follow DWI’s Enforcement Policy
