star this property answer text <p>The EU Withdrawal Act 2018 will make sure all existing EU environmental law continues to operate in UK law, providing businesses and stakeholders with certainty as we leave the EU. This will include the secondary legislation which has already transposed the EU Bathing Water Directive, which will ensure the UK maintains or surpasses the same standards and levels of testing for water quality required of EU Member States.</p><p> </p><p>In January 2018, the Government published its 25 Year Plan for the environment detailing our ambition to be the first generation to leave the environment in a better state than we found it. As part of its plan for clean and plentiful water, the Government aims to minimise harmful bacteria in designated bathing waters by 2030 and make sure that potential bathers are warned of any short term pollution risks.</p><p> </p><p>Drinking water and bathing waters are both devolved matters. With regards to drinking water, standards derived from the EU Drinking Water Directive have been transposed into UK law and the regulations in force cover the whole of the UK. These standards apply currently and will continue to apply when the UK leaves the EU. National standards which are not directly derived from the EU Drinking Water Directive are also enshrined in UK law and will remain so once the UK leaves. The UK is covered by three technical regulators of drinking water quality: the Drinking Water Inspectorate covering England and Wales, the Drinking Water Quality Regulator for Scotland and the Drinking Water Inspectorate for Northern Ireland. These organisations will continue their role in scrutinising water company activities and enforcing standards on departure from the EU. Bathing water quality standards are derived from the EU Bathing Water Directive and will also continue to apply when the UK leaves the EU. Water quality is monitored by the Environment Agency (in England), Natural Resources Wales, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and the Northern Ireland Environment Agency.</p><p> </p>

This information is collected under the category “crops for aromatic or medicinal use&quot;. This category includes plants such as poppies, lavender, chamomile, and plants or parts of plants used for pharmaceutical purposes, perfume manufacture or other aromatic products.
