Kent RO Systems Ltd. received the first product certifications in India for two devices that make microbiological reduction claims. The certifications are the final step for both products to receive the Seal of Purity from the Water Quality India Assn. (WQIA). 

"We’re delighted to see Kent RO Systems achieve this important milestone for their water purifiers,” said Pauli Undesser, deputy executive director of the Water Quality Assn. (WQA). “It’s critical that the people of India have certified products they can depend on to ensure their drinking water is safe and reliable.” 

WQIA, established in 2014, is a not-for-profit legal entity in India that collaborates with WQA. 

“It is a proud day for the Indian water industry to see a totally indigenous standard developed by WQIA to have been successfully adopted by Kent RO Systems,” said Rajul Parikh, president of WQIA. “We are confident that many more companies will also test their products to this standard and raise the level of confidence among consumers as well as the quality of products in the market. We congratulate Kent on this important achievement.” 

The Seal of Purity signifies that a device meets criteria laid down in the new product certification scheme, allowing any reduction claims to be measured and certified.
