Water is integral to the existence of life on earth, be it human, animals, or plants. Only 2.5% of the total water on planet earth is fresh and potable. This isn’t any hidden fact that water affects the production, manufacturing, & cultivation in many ways. The presence of toxic elements, contaminants, and chemical residues can destroy the product quality. Hence, a plethora of statutory bodies and governing agencies have imposed standards to check the quality of water. Some of the major standards are:

  • Indian Standards (IS)
  • American Public Health Association (APHA)
  • The Food and Drug Administration (USFDA)
  • Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) manuals for analysis
  • American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM)
  • Association of Official Analytical Chemists International (AOAC)
  • American Oil Chemist’s Society (AOCS)
  • American Spice Trade Association (ASTA)
  • US-FDA Pesticide Analytical Manual (PAM)
  • US-EPA Methods
  • International Organization for Standardization (ISO)
  • Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia of India (API)
  • Indian Pharmacopoeia (IP)
  • Food Chemical Codex (FCC)
