Bottled Drinking Water is strictly controlled in the UAE, under the Emirates Quality Mark Scheme of the Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology. The regulation was implemented in the country aiming to improve water standards in terms of quality by unifying control mechanisms on drinking water which include production, processing, packaging and distribution. This has been done as part of ESMA's strategy to regulate and monitor products which have direct impact on health, safety of the consumer and the environment and to promote knowledge-based, competitive economy, sustainable environment and integrated infrastructure.
