RAH Consultancy has had 14 years experience of operating, defining and interpreting the water regulations and the preceding byelaws. The consultancy is aware of occasions where the Regulation Officers interpretation laid upon a regulation and the guidance thereto; differs from the interpretation of the other parties. In these cases it is often possible to use an acceptable person to mediate between the opposing groups and reach a mutually acceptable solution. This mediation can also be used for instance, when agreement cannot be reached on the levels of backflow protection required for a system. The consultancy will also prepare documents and present cases to WRAS or the Water Industry Technical Committee where such adjudication is warranted.
