Testing for Water & Food safety

Water & Food safety is a critical activity. The quality problem of the water & food would have dramatic consequences to the staffs and students in UM. It would be an extremely annoying, possibly costly and unpleasant experience.

ICMS has therefore co-operated with the Office of Health, Safety and Environmental Affairs (HSEO) to provide testing and monitoring service on drinking water, edible ice, swimming pool water, artificial lake water & food at UM.

ICMS refers to testing standards that combines Macao, the Mainland and overseas’ regulation to closely monitor the water and food quality. Our analysis covers a range of micro-organisms, trace elements, physical and chemical aspects, etc. The testing result will be submitted to HSEO for evaluation.
