The Scottish Water Distribution Operations Maintenance Strategy (DOMS) scheme is a company scheme owned and produced by Scottish Water for persons working on Scottish Water sites. The registration database is held and administered by Energy & Utility Skills as part of the Energy & Utility Skills Register (EUSR).
The DOMS scheme has been produced in order to ensure water company employees, contractors, supervisors, consultants, delivery partners, framework suppliers and self-lay organisations follow a consistent approach across the Scottish Water region to safeguard the water quality reaching customers. By taking this uniformed approach to the operation and maintenance of distribution assets problems affecting water quality such as discolouration, microbiological failures and issues with taste and odours will be reduced. The DOMS scheme builds upon the foundation formed by the EUSR National Water Hygiene scheme.
DOMS training and registration is required for all persons working on water distribution activities within the Scottish Water region. This includes, but is not limited to all Scottish Water and Scottish Water Solutions operational personnel, contractors, consultants, delivery partners, framework suppliers and self-lay organisations.
