Recognized and approved by the Spanish Agency for Food Safety and Nutrition (AESAN),the document establishes hygienic procedures based on the criteria of HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points). It also proposes measures to ensure the organoleptic quality of water that are also used in the bottle water coolers.
The guide is a reference model for the water packaging sector together with the manual of the European Federation of Bottled Waters (EFBW). It treats all manufacturing processes related to bottled water, including retrieval, packaging, labeling, personal hygiene and transport, among others.
