This not a “law”. Here’s what EU spokesman said:

From your link:

The bizarre diktat from Brussels has far-reaching implications for member states, including Britain, as no water sold in the EU can now claim to protect against dehydration.

Sounds like a law to me.

Also,

Moreover, this advise ruling was not an initiative of EFSA, so it’s not a case of a government having too much time on its hands.

It took them 3 years to investigate and make a ruling that water won't protect against dehydration. I would disagree that this isn't about too much time on their hands. It should have taken someone 20 seconds to state the obvious, of course drinking water can help protect against dehydration.

Are you being intentionally dense? This is a quote from the agitprop piece. The same piece at the end has to admit, by quoting the spokesman, that it's not a law.

There is no evidence that it took them 3 years to investigate. The request was apparently filed in 2006 but that doesn't mean they immediately began "investigations". I'm sure there is a long queue of such requests.

As for dehydration, I can only lead a horse to water, I can't make it hydrated. Sorry you skipped the relevant links that showed that you're engaging in the same strawmen the MSM did.

I swear my kids brought home a 12 pack of Diet Coke that had an "aids hydration" message on it. Caffeinated Diet Coke. We all LOL'd since even my kids know that caffeine is dehydrating. But yeah, it should be illegal to put misleading labels on foods and drinks, because some people might actually believe the BS and make bad purchasing decisions based upon the misleading labeling.

If corporations were honest and caring, consumer protection laws wouldn't be required.

But the message was true to fact. Sort of. Drinking diet coke isn't like drinking ocean water. Your body will need more water than the water in the water to get rid of the extra salt, but it won't need more water than the water in the coke to deal with the caffeine.

A can of diet coke, or regular coke for that matter, aids in hydration. It's just not as good for that purpose as plain old water.
