Regulations and water quality standards define the market for water technology. However, these definitions are shifting in markets across the globe. Advances in monitoring technologies and digital communication have raised the visibility of contaminants in both the environment and the public conscience, putting greater focus on safeguarding public and environmental health through strict compliance with regulation.

In many countries, this is resulting not only in more stringent water and wastewater quality standards for utilities, but also in the development of regulatory regimes covering entire water bodies, as a means of tackling non-point source pollution such as stormwater and agricultural run-off. These regulatory developments are bringing new opportunities and legal requirements for water sector stakeholders, and will shape the specific technology needs of different water markets in the years to come.

The GWI Global Regulations Package helps you to understand the opportunities emerging from water, wastewater and sludge regulations and plan your business strategy accordingly.

The Package provides you with an extensive directory of water, wastewater and biosolids quality standards, supported by an analysis of the key water quality and pollution issues driving current and future regulation and target-setting in the water industry, the countries which are leading the way in addressing them, and the relationship between developments in technology and regulation.

The Global Regulations Package consists of two parts:
The WaterData Regulations Database, an online resource providing an extensive directory of quality standards for potable water, wastewater, reuse & municipal sludge from national and regional regulators across the world. Examine the regulatory environment and quality standards for 40 countries with ease.

The GWI Market Insight, a digital report analysing the regulations, water quality targets and incentives that are set to have the greatest impact on the market, and the key themes driving regulatory developments across the world. This commentary and analysis will help you position your business to make use of the growth opportunities emerging from regulation.

This is an essential, time-saving tool for incorporating water industry regulations into your business operations and strategy.

The GWI Market Insight
The Market Insight analyses the key global themes driving regulations, water quality targets and incentives around the world, and their impact on water markets at a global and national level. It examines the relationship between technological developments and regulatory change, exploring how improved detection and public understanding of water quality issues is increasing the socio-political risk of non-compliance, obliging utilities to be more pro-active in identifying and dealing with pollution, and driving opportunities for new treatment technologies.

Featuring key country profiles, the Market Insight highlights where regulations have forced investment in treatment technology and plant upgrades, with reference to specific utility project case studies to aid your market research. It also analyses future trends in regulatory development and compliance, so you can see which geographies to expand into and how to increase your existing market share.

Key Features:
Wastewater Reuse ­– Although the adoption of regulations is helping drive the take-up of wastewater reuse practices, these regulatory frameworks need to go hand in hand with funding and public acceptance. Calls for quality standards relating to indirect and direct potable water reuse are being implemented to ensure it is safe for human consumption. Examine the different reuse regulations being enforced across Europe, North America and Australia, and understand where there is the greatest demand for your expertise.

Sludge Management & Resource Recovery – Limited availability of phosphate rock is pushing the market for nutrient removal and recovery from wastewater effluent and sewage sludge. Analyse the specific targets and regulations being brought into action as the EU countries, and the USA seek to increase nutrient recovery from wastewater. Identify the emerging technology needs and incoming legal requirements for the sludge treatment industry.

The Fight Against Micropollutants – Regulators are increasingly concerned with the risks posed by micropollutants, such as pesticides, hormones, pharmaceutical and personal care products. Find out how European countries such as Germany and Switzerland are leading the way on micropollutant regulations and forcing utilities to take action now, and how countries such as Australia, Canada, and the USA, are following up.

Stormwater, Runoff & CSO Events – Explore how regulatory bodies in Europe, and the USA are strengthening legislation to encourage utilities to prevent nutrient pollution from untreated discharge, and the serious threat it poses to the environment and public health.

A growing emphasis on protecting environmental water quality, from China’s Lake Tai to the USA’s Chesapeake Bay, rather than just tackling point source pollution, means that the role of stormwater and CSOs is increasingly coming into focus. Use the Market Insight to identify the infrastructure and technology opportunities, arising from this regulatory shift.

Key Country Profiles - Examine how regulations and quality standards, whether enforced or incentivised, are leading to amendments in national regulatory frameworks, and driving opportunity in several water technology markets in the coming years.

Featuring detailed breakdowns of new legal requirements, emerging technology opportunities and future trends in regulatory development and compliance in the USA, the EU, Germany, Switzerland, India, Israel, China, Chile, and Australia, with regional profiles for Latin America and the Middle East.

Case Studies - of specific projects undertaken by utilities to meet regulation or respond to public health crises, exploring how private and public utilities face different challenges and levels of public backlash against permit breaching.

The WaterData Regulations Database
The Regulations Database is an extensive directory of all current regulations and guidelines relating to quality standards for potable water, municipal wastewater disposal and reuse, and treated sludge in 40 countries, allowing your business to assess the prime markets for your solutions, and identify potential opportunities for tailoring technologies to meet emerging challenges.

Search regulations for over a 1,000 different quality parameters within four main categories (chemicals, microbial contaminants, radionuclides, and aesthetic measurements), and benchmark them by WHO and EU standards.

Examine regulations for individual states and regions in the USA, UAE, Canada and Australia.

Search by parameter to compare specific parameters across multiple countries, or by regulation or country to view all regulations applicable to your target market. Download the entire database to manipulate the data yourself.

Housed inside the WaterData platform, the Regulations Database is an intuitive, sophisticated and one of a kind tool that makes finding regulations pertaining to your core or target markets simple.

The ability to search by country, parameter or application, in addition to WHO and EU standards, makes this database essential for businesses scoping out market trends and opportunities, and ensuring compliance throughout their business operations.
