Hello,

I am new in quality management. Currently our food processing plant is aiming to register for ISO 22000. I understand that ISO 22000 is hormonizing the world food safety standard. I am not sure about the requirement of potable water, there are some standards/ guidelines for water quality. Which standards/Guidelines should I follow?

For example, Should I follow WHO Guidelines for drinking-water quality? Thank you.

Hello water,

Courtesy of google here are a few definitions of potable water:
http://www.google.co...e:Potable Water

You won't find any requirements for potable water in ISO 22000; the standard is not that prescriptive. I would consult your local or national regulatory body for the requirements for your particular country, process and product.

I found an article for further reading at the link below:
Safe Water is Critical for Food Processing

Hope this helps; let us know if you have any further questions.

I'm not an expert on this type of thing - correct me if I'm wrong experts. :oops:

Regards,
Simon

Hello Esther,

Ask your water supplier first under what conditions he delivers the water to you.
He should have specs.

Hello everyone!!

Like Okido said, first all of all I will check your customer's requirements and also, the legislation in your country. In Spain we a law about water requirements, uses and analysis. And I am not sure but I suppose in EU legislation as well. And as well it is one of the PRs of HACCP.

Hi Friends,

I think it depends of each country so we shall observe the country's regulation at first and then for the guideline, I think we should follow the WHO Guidelines as defined in Codex - Food Hygiene.

John,

Think this should be what you are looking for. Happened to come across this and I remembered someone asked for help on this area.
