This paper describes the main outlines of the European Approvals Scheme for Construction Products in Contact With Drinking Water as described in the interim report "EAS on Paper" of September 2001. The setting up of the EAS is the outcome of the implementation of the Directive, which protects consumers' health, and the Construction Products Directive, which requires products to be designed for their intended use. When a product fulfils the requirements, it can have a CE-marking.
