I'd just like to confirm one thing. Since the link I gave was about
bottled water, does it mean you are looking for information on only
bottled or purified drinking water rather than tap water?

These are links to pages showing bottled/drinking water regulations
from many areas. I hope they give you what you need.

Conquest Commercial Bottled Water Plants
- I got this web page which gives general information on bottled water
processing plants, in case you might be

intertested in this.

The Water Supply (Water Quality) Regulations 2000:
- Here is a set of rules to UK's purified water.

Italy and maybe rest of EU:
New Community Directives for mineral water in tight containers
- Here's something that describes rules about Italy, but it does
mentions some thing about EU as well.

EU drinking water disinfection regulation:
- For certain, this is a page about water regulations for the whole
EU. I hope this will do for France as well since I haven't found
anything on just France's regulations only.

Drinking water: Environmental Health - Victorian Government Health
Information, Australia
- This is one page on Australian rules, only in Victoria, though I
believe others areas of Australia will have similar rules.

Drinking water FAQ: Environmental Health - Victorian Government Health
Information, Australia:
- This is the page that led me to the above:

Price and Quality Regulation in the Water Industry The Need for ...
- A little paper I added about drinking water standards issues.

EEC Drinking Water Regulations
- This probably goes for the whole world. 

Googles Search terms used
international water purification regulations
uk drinking water regulations
french/france drinking water regulations
australia purified water regulations
italy purified water regulations
france/french purified water regulations

Yup ;) That's what I was looking for & wow what a ton of info in that link!  

It is only US stuff though - if you want to find any international or
world regulations, or maybe just the regulations of Austrailia, The
UK, France & Italy, then you can call it an answer & we'll close out
the question :)
