A warm welcome to the Cove.

Since the quality and packaging of Mineral (packaged) water is governed by the BIS specifications in India, you may wish to visit the relevant web page for detailed information on 'Requirements to be complied with by the applicant of packaged drinking water for grant of BIS licence according to IS 14543:2004'..

Here you can find a useful 'self assessment checklist for GMP in food and beverage manufacture.'

Please refer Annex-E (available on the hyperlinked page) for the specifications/scheme of testing and inspection.

Hope this helps.

Hi Siju

In addition to above responses, find attached document on Recent developments in Bottled Water Quality and Safety issued by Drinking Water Research Foundation (DWRF). The DWRF has prepared this report to summarize recent developments in the protection and regulation of bottled water. The chemical and microbiological mandatory testing and limits are cited in this document as per USFDA regulations.

Hope you will find useful.

Re: Quality Control Processes in a Mineral Water Company

We have been bottling water for about 5years now. I have also worked as a microbiologist in this establishment. Our Process monitoring covers the Raw Water (Municipal supply), Treated Water (Enhanced filtration treated municipal water) and our packaged water (Reverse Osmosis Processed Water). for the treated and packaged water we have 0 cfus/ml specification for coliforms and less than 25cfus/ml. We also treat our packaged water with ozone ( 0.1-0.4ppm ozone). Residual ozone prior to dispatch is 0. We also check Conductivity and TDS. Once a year an external Laboratory tests all our water for pesticides, radionuclides and the packaged water is also tested for bromate levels.
Thanks to 6thsense for your informative Post and/or Attachment!
