Water supply licensees
The economic regulators for water, Ofwat (England and Wales) and the Water Industry Commission for Scotland (WICS), also license companies to supply water or wastewater services to non-household customers. Market reform is opening up more opportunities for competition among business customers in the UK. Competition in Scotland was opened up under the Water Services, etc. (Scotland) Act 2005.
NI Water has dual status as a government-owned company and a non-departmental public body. It operates according to conditions outlined in its licence.
