The drinking water industry is highly regulated across the world. There is a related responsibility to ensure that waste water is effectively treated to reduce environmental pollution. Fapas waste water proficiency test samples replicate those used to test for potential environmental contamination, covering a wide range of determinants. These include standard oxygen demand and physical parameters as well as trace metals and nutrients.

Your testing ability for these routine metals within drinking water is vital to ensure only safe levels of these metals are present in drinking water. Salts and minerals within drinking water can be found in various places, especially through rock deposits through erosion.

Fapas proficiency tests challenge your labs within a testing environment similar to your routine testing set up. This can therefore provide immediate insights into your testing arrangement, and allow you to highlight any areas of improvement across a range of factors quickly and efficiently to ensure only high quality test results are offered to your customers.
