Water, being an essential ingredient in food preparation, standardised testing of water is critical, especially with the rapid expansion in the packaged food and foodservice industries.
At Arbro, all the necessary water testing guidelines are followed with precision before a water testing report is issued to the vendor, easing the process of obtaining a license from the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI).
As part of the application to be submitted for licensing, food businesses are required to submit a water testing report of the water they are using in their processes, confirming its compliance to the potable water standard (IS 10500:2012) prescribed by the Bureau of Indian Standards.
The Food Safety and Standards Authority Of India has in recent advertisement stated that the last date for the getting licenses for existing food businesses will not be extended beyond 4 February.
All existing and new food businesses are required to apply to either the state or central licensing authorities for grant of the license or for conversion of an existing license.
Depending on the nature of the food business, they are required to either submit a complete report or a report covering the essential parameters described, including physical, chemical and microbiological parameters.
The water testing report must be obtained from an FSSAI recognized and NABL accredited laboratory. Also, it is essential that the sampling is carried out by the laboratory and the report must contain the details of the date of sampling and the person carrying out the sampling.
