The regulations should be fairly easy to circumvent, for example :-

"I personally cannot guarantee the quality of the water supplied to my premises and taking due precaution for your health and safety Sir/Madam I will boil the kettle to ensure the water is drinkable. If you would like to take a seat whilst the boiled water reduces to drinking temperature..........."

Although I am a personal license holder I have not had the need to keep up to current regulation but I can detect bullshit at several paces.

It is interesting to note however that the Dept of Health which introduced this notion back in April 2010 was opposed by both the Dept for Culture, Media and Sport and the Dept for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

A regular can of worms.
