The International Council of Bottled Water Associations (ICBWA) has adopted a Model Code of quality and safety standards, following a meeting in Paris at the end of February.

The Model Code provides minimum requirements that must be followed by the members of all ICBWA organizations. Under the ICBWA Model Code, all bottlers must pass an annual, unannounced plant inspection by an independent, internationally recognised third-party organisation. The inspection audits quality and testing records, reviews all areas of plant operation from source to finished product and checks compliance with all governmental regulations.

ICBWA was established in 2000 and represents bottled water associations from throughout the world. Its members are Asia Bottled Water Association, Australasian Bottled Water Institute, Canadian Bottled Water Association, European Bottled Water Federation, Latin American Bottled Water Association and the International Bottled Water Association (United States).

The six ICBWA organizations represent over 2000 members in approximately 100 countries. The members include bottled water producers, distributors and suppliers.
