Have you looked at this website, i think it could be useful to you

You could of course ask your potential buyer what the regulations are

Kind regards


Information on the Customs requirements for exporting is given in HMRC Public Notice 275. All notices can be found on our website under Quick Links > Library > Official Statistics – Publications – Notices, Info Sheets & Other Reference Materials > Import, Export & International Trade. The Public Notices are in numerical order.

I would also suggest that you contact the Indian Customs Authorities to ascertain if there are any import restrictions on such items.

Sorry for the delay in replying to you. I was on leave due to a breavement. There are specific PFA requirements for bottled water, I could send you the packaging laws and regulations, if you let me have your email id.
