Food microbiology regulatory update: new & revised ISO 11133 and ISO 17410 standards

Related categories: Cultures, enzymes, yeast

ISO 11133:2014+Amd1:2018 is a mandatory standard for all ISO 17025-accredited labs for microbiological analysis of food, feed and water. It describes the preparation, production and performance testing of culture media from this whole area. Planned publication of amendment 2:2019 contains the control strains for the performance testing of confirmation and characterization media, reagents, dyes, stains and materials described in standards for the microbiological examination of samples from the food chain and water. 

The technically revised edition of ISO 17410 specifies a horizontal method for the enumeration of psychrotrophic microorganisms that are able to grow at 6.5 °C. It replaces ISO 6730:2005 (IDF 101:2005), “Milk — Enumeration of colony forming units of psychrotrophic microorganisms — Colony-count technique at 6.5 °C” and ISO 8552:2004 (IDF 132:2004) “Milk — Estimation of psychrotrophic microorganisms — Colony count technique at 21 °C (Rapid method)”. 

This webinar explains the latest changes in ISO 11133 including its amendments and in ISO 17410 and will give an outlook on the future of these both standards and other ISO standards.
