The wholesale services agreement is a legally enforceable contract between Scottish Water and licensed providers. The agreement sets out the water or sewerage services that Scottish Water agrees to provide to licensed providers, and the commercial terms on which those services are provided.
Each licensed provider is required to negotiate a wholesale services agreement with Scottish Water. We have produced a template wholesale services agreement to help guide initial discussions.
If a licensed provider is unable to reach agreement with Scottish Water on a wholesale services agreement, it may apply to the Commission to determine the terms of the agreement. In doing so, we would use our template agreement as a starting point.
