As the operator of a water supply system, you are obliged to register it. Furthermore, as the operator of a building water supply system, you are obliged to register a non-drinking water system operated in the same building.

In order to ensure drinking water quality, the water used to supply drinking water must be tested for contaminants at regular intervals.

In order to determine the necessary examinations as well as the examination intervals, you must inform your responsible health authority of the (re-)commissioning, construction, significant structural or operational changes or the transfer of ownership in relation to water supply facilities.

Subsequently, the health department will contact you regarding an on-site inspection.
