FTC preps for BWA oversight


THE FAIR TRADING COMMISSION (FTC) is getting its systems ready for full regulation of the Barbados Water Authority (BWA).

The century-old BWA is the last remaining utility to be regulated by the quasi-judicial body which sets rates and standards of service deliver for providers including Cable & Wireless and Barbados Light & Power.

FTC chairman Sir Neville Nicholls told the SUNDAY SUN the BWA had been put under the commission’s regulation.

“An order has been made placing it under the FTC but it was always understood that we needed to recruit a water analyst on our staff. We have one analyst dealing with telecoms, another dealing with electricity but not someone handling water,” Sir Neville said.
