Regulations

Legislation applied on water mist

Because of fog water harvesting sector is virtually unknown, there is no specific regulation.
 
In the case of Alisios, as stated in the Spanish health legislation, RD and RD 140-2003 1744-2003,  if water does not come from a underground source (spring or mineral) it should be governed according to RD 1799 to 2010, having to be called as "prepared drinking water ", although for us, as producers, we do not like this name as it can confuse the final customer.
 
We are dealing with the competent institutions so that the water mist is regulated and named in a proper way. In the mean time, because of the existing regulations,  we cannot include in our labels tha analytic data which is of an extraordinary interest, and it has to be traded as "prepared drinking water".
