New and revised BS codes cover risk assessment and sampling for waterborne pathogens

Anyone involved with water safety should know about two newly published British Standards:

  • BS 7592:2022 Sampling for Legionella bacteria in water systems – Code of practice is a revision that gives updated guidance on how to sample water and test for the presence of legionella
  • BS 8580-2:2022 Water quality – Part 2: Risk assessments for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other waterborne pathogens – Code of practice is an all-new standard on how to carry out risk assessments for PA and other waterborne pathogens

These standards codify the latest thinking on how to improve water safety. They can help you:

  • Conduct efficient and effective water safety management
  • Strengthen risk management and legal compliance​​​​​​
  • Develop your expertise
  • Keep up to date with the latest knowledge and understanding of how waterborne pathogens colonize and grow in water systems
