Water is vital to humans and each of us needs at least 1.5 litres of safe water a day to drink. Beginning as long ago as 1958 and 1978 respectively, the World Health Organization (WHO) and ISO have published standards to help ensure water is safe to drink. Focused from the start on monitoring radionuclides in water, and continually cooperating with WHO, ISO is now busier in this field than ever.ers.
ISO standards and water
Few challenges are more global than water. ISO provides global tools to help us manage our shared water resources equitably and durably. ISO water standards build confidence through consensus-based global solutions for good business practice, management of resources, risk assessment, metrics and infrastructure. They facilitate sustainable water management and increase water potential, helping alleviate water scarcity and contributing to achieving the UN's Millennium Development Goals.
