The Water Act 2014 (Commencement No. 3 and Transitional Provisions) Order 2015 brings one Part and two Schedules of the Water Act 2014 into force. The part of the Act brought into force allows regulations to be made on how water undertakers wholly or mainly in England may exit the non-household retail market with minimal disruption to customers.
The Schedules brought into force set out duties that must be met by holders of water supply and sewerage licences, which will be required to participate in the retail market for use of the respective undertaker's infrastructure.
