Proposal for Amendments to the Legal Inspection Requirements for Water Dispensers and 2 Other Household Electrical Appliances; (7 page(s), in Chinese), (6 page(s), in English)
The BSMI received reports that dichloromethane exceeding the limit value of "Drinking Water Quality Standards" was found in the drinking water processed by energy water machines, a kind of water filter, posing risk to human health. With a view to protecting consumers from relevant hazards, the BSMI proposes to add "Technical specification for water quality testing of drinking water from water filters (purifiers) commodities" as an additional inspection standard for water dispensers, drinking water suppliers and electric storage tank boiling water heaters. In addition, the scope is proposed to be expanded to cover hydrogen water machine with heating function.
