Guidelines for Managing Microbial Water Quality in Health Facilities

Monday 11 November, 2013

In October 2013 the Queensland government released the Preliminary Guidelines for Managing Microbial Water Quality in Health Facilities.  These guidelines were then fully released in November 2013.

CETEC was appointed to the Technical Advisory Panel (TAP) by the Queensland Government in June 2013 and along with the other members including Queensland Health and AECOM, the CETEC team have been working on the development of these guidelines over the last four months.
