Potable Water Testing

We follow the latest requirements

Using state-of-the-art scientific analysis, we conduct testing and reporting of drinking water using the end-to-end set of parameters stipulated by WHO to ensure precise, accurate and legally defensible results.

Our potable water sampling and testing ensures a ship’s drinking water meets all required local and international regulations. Our best-in-class network of laboratories can assist you with your drinking water testing requirements and regulatory responsibilities in locations across the globe.
