a) Temporary Disconnection and Re-Connection Non-Household Premises up to and including 40mm sized supply.
b) Temporary Disconnection and Re-Connection Non-Household Premises over 40mm sized supply.
To carry out these activities, retailers or their nominated service providers will need to be certified as an accredited entity. The NWL scheme will be administered by Lloys′s Register and they will carry out the initial accreditation assessments, certification and on-going monitoring on behalf of NWL. Details of the accredited entity scheme and how to apply for accreditation are available on the Lloyd′s Register website here www.lr.org/en/utilities/water-industry-registration-scheme-wirs-wirsae/
