The California Department of Public Health, Food and Drug Branch (FDB), licenses and regulates manufacturers of bottled water (regardless of whether they are produced in-state or out-of-state, or in foreign countries) and vended water. Vended water is water that is dispensed by a water vending machine, retail water facility, a store, water from a private water source or water delivered by a hauler for drinking.

FDB inspects in-state bottlers and vendors for sanitation, manufacturing operation, control equipment and quality control procedures, testing requirements, record keeping, labeling and advertising. For bottlers located out-of-state or in foreign countries, FDB relies on the inspection by the pertinent regulatory agency of the state or the country where the plant is located.

Contact the FDB to obtain license applications and procedures.
