Thus, to certify this work, the joint venture owned by the Torrevieja City Council and Hidraqua has had the ISO 22000 certification since 2014, being one of the first companies managing the integral water cycle to obtain it.
This certification specifies the requirements that an organization's management system must establish to demonstrate its ability to control hazards related to food safety. Since water is considered as such and in fact, tap water has become one of the most controlled and monitored foods in the world.
It is therefore a standard with a marked food character, which makes it a tool aimed at ensuring water quality through global risk assessment and management throughout all stages of the supply chain, from collection to the final consumer.
The years that it has been working on this certification have allowed it to become a national benchmark in the quality standards and protocols required by the standard. Hence, the Torrevieja supply health plan has resulted in one of the examples of success shown during the XVI Spanish Congress and the VI Ibero-American Congress on Environmental Health that is being held this week in Madrid.
The water health risk management system under the ISO 22000 Standard is integrated with the rest of the systems implemented in the company, providing enormous added value in the form of a water health guarantee for Torrevieja. Thus, this certification is the result of Agamed's Integrated Management Policy based on a high commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility.
