Drinking Water Directive

Can somebody please advise the legislation in UK & Europe for pumps used to transport potable drinking water? Is the Drinking Water Directive 98/83/EC mandatory, and does this mean that the supplier NEEDS to have the product inspected & tested by a notified body? If so, does this apply - even if it is a stainless steel unit with a WRAS approved mechanical seal? Thanks
