Bottled Water Regulation
Is bottled water regulated?
Bottled water is regulated as a food product by the FDA. Bottled water companies must adhere to the FDA’s Good Manufacturing Practices, Quality Standards, and Standards of Identity.
All bottled water products must comply with the FDA’s Quality Standards in Section 103.35(d)(2) of Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). These standards, along with the FDA’s Good Manufacturing Practices, ensure the safety of all bottled water products from production to packaging to consumption.
FDA’s labeling rules for bottled water establish standards of identity and standardized definitions for terms found on bottled water labels such as “spring,” “artesian,” “well,” “mineral,” “purified,” and “distilled.” Seltzer, soda water, and tonic water are considered soft drinks; they are excluded from these regulations.
Bottled water is subject to both General Food Good manufacturing practices (GMPs) and GMPs specific to bottled water processing and bottling. General food GMPs govern such areas as plant and ground maintenance, sanitary maintenance of buildings and fixtures, and sanitary facilities, including water supply, plumbing and sewage disposal. Bottled water GMPs provide detailed regulations governing plant construction and design, sanitary facilities and operations, equipment design and construction, production and process controls specific to the production and processing of bottled drinking water, and record keeping.
In addition to FDA’s extensive regulatory requirements, the bottled water industry is subject to state regulatory requirements. A significant responsibility of the state is inspecting, sampling, analyzing and approving sources of water. Under the federal GMP’s, only approved sources of water can be used to supply a bottling plant. Another area in which some states have important responsibilities that complement federal regulation is the certification of testing laboratories. As with any food establishment, the states perform unannounced spot inspections, and some states perform annual inspections.
In addition to the state and federal standards for bottled water, IBWA bottler members are subject to another level of oversight. As a condition of membership, bottlers must submit to an annual, unannounced plant inspection administered by an independent, internationally recognized third-party inspection organization. This inspection audits quality and testing records, reviews all areas of plant operation from source through finished product, and checks compliance with FDA Quality Standards and Good Manufacturing Practices and any state regulations.
IBWA has established a quality assurance program: a strict set of standards called the Model Code. The Model Code establishes tougher requirements than federal and state authorities.

How do I know that Cryptosporidium is not in my bottled water?
The second source water type is approved potable municipal supplies. Bottled water companies that use these sources reprocess this water using methods such as distillation, reverse osmosis, deionization and filtration. This ensures that the finished product is very different – in composition and taste – from the original source water.
All IBWA member companies that use municipal supplies are encouraged to employ at least one of the three processing methods recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for effective removal of microbial (surface water) contaminants, including Cryptosporidium. These processing methods are reverse osmosis, one micron absolute filtration, and distillation.

How is bottled water different from tap water?
Another noticeable difference is the fact that bottled water does not contain any chlorine. In place of chlorine, some bottlers use ozone, a form of oxygen or ultraviolet light as the final disinfecting agent. Chlorinated water sometimes contains an off taste, and many consumers prefer the taste of bottled water where no trace of chlorine is found.
