I just saw a post talking about how various brands of spring water in the UK are not meeting regulations because they are bottled at a different location to the spring.
Looking online, most sites (including https://www.gov.uk/guidance/spring-water-how-to-produce-and-label) specify that "bottling must take place at the spring or borehole", with some linking to the legislation for England:
However, while I know my legal speak isn't very good, I just can't find where in that document it explicitly says that spring water must be bottled at source?
Schedule 10 (the most obvious place) just seems to say it must be extracted from spring, not altered, and meet Schedule 2&4. Those two schedules seems to mainly just cover the requirements for the water to be legally considered mineral/spring, but don't cover bottling.
Is someone able to point out where in the regulations it states that the water must be bottled at source?
