New Royal Decree for drinking water in Spain

On 1 August the new RD 902/2018 was published in the Boletín Oficial del Estado (BOE), that sets new criteria for the following products: Water for human consumption, natural mineral waters and spring waters, packaged prepared waters.

The main aspect is to guarantee that water provided by the water supply system is clean and suitable as drinking water. The Spanish Tentamus laboratory Laboratorio Control, accredited by ENAC (Spanish National Accreditation Body), offers necessary services and analyses to ensure the quality of water, covering the vast majority of the physical-chemical and bacteriological determinations demanded by the current legislation.


These include:

  • Sensory and microbiological testing
  • Control of basic parameters (e.g. organoleptic parameters, turbidity, conductivity, PH, ammonium, microbiological parameters)
  • Parameters to be determined in DWTP output water or deposit
  • Water tap analysis


For further consulting, please contact the sales department about the new Royal Decree and the water analysis services offered by Laboratorio Control.
