This document describes the specifications and test methods for gravity fed devices for conditioning of drinking water that are not connected to the mains water distribution system in buildings, known as jug water filter systems. It also gives instructions for the user manuals, so that the jug water filter system can be used and maintained properly. Jug water filter systems are intended to modify the properties of drinking water only, and are not designed to make non-potable water safe for drinking. The scope of this document does not extend to combination systems that require an electrical power supply such as water heaters and water coolers systems.
NOTE 1 Although jug water filter systems are covered by the widely harmonized food legislation (EU Regulations 178/2002 and 1935/2004), existing national regulations concerning the use and or the characteristics of these products remain in force
NOTE 2 This standard provides no information as to whether the product is used without restriction in any of the Member States of the EU or EFTA.
NOTE 3 An amendment is being prepared with the following scope: This Amendment provides a validated test method using Pseudomonas Aeruginosa (ATCC 15442) as a bacterial indicator in addition to the test procedure using E. Coli.
