We’re proud that our products comply with a range of industry regulations. You can be sure that when you specify a Zip product, it meets all of the relevant standards.


The Water Regulations Advisory Scheme (WRAS) is a conformance mark that demonstrates that an item complies with the high standards set out by the 1999 UK water regulations.

The WRAS logo certifies that our drinking water systems are safe to use in commercial and residential settings.


All Zip Water UK systems have been fully tested and comply with EU safety, health and environmental requirements.


Our 0.2 micron MircroPurity filter has been tested and approved according to NSF/ANSI Standards 42 and 53, evaluating the safety and structural integrity of point-of-use/point-of-entry (POU/POE) drinking water filtration systems and certifying the health and safety of drinking water.

Standard 42 covers aesthetic (taste and odour, chlorine, particulate) claims, while Standard 53 addresses specific health-related contaminants that may be present in drinking water, such as microbiological (including filterable cysts) or chemical (including pesticides and lead).

Equality Act compliant

Whether refurbishment or new build, architects, contractors and facilities managers are expected to ensure high quality disabled access, no matter the size of the business. We offer systems and accessories that will comply with The Equality Act 2010, Building Regulations Document Part M, BS8300 and the National Planning Framework. Speak to the experts at Zip for best-practice recommendations.

BREEAM compliant

An increasing number of UK construction projects are being considered for BREEAM accreditation. BREEAM (The Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) was first published by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) in 1990 and is the world’s longest established method of assessing, rating, and certifying the sustainability of buildings.

Our drinking water systems all contribute to attaining credits within the Water section of the BREEAM UK New Construction 2018 guidelines, helping a building to achieve its overall BREEAM rating.

RoHS compliant

All materials involved in Zip HydroTap manufacture comply with the European Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive 2011/65/EC.

Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)

An EDP is an ISO standardised tool to communicate the sustainability of a product or system. Voluntarily developed, it contains quality-assured and comparable information regarding the environmental performance of products. You can download ours via the website.
