Analysis Request Forms
The Ministère provides analysis request forms that complies with the
requirements of section 30 of the
Regulation respecting the quality of drinking water–hereinafter, “the
Regulation” for each type of required control, based on the
specific characteristics of a given distribution system. Accredited
laboratories can directly access these analysis request forms in the
système informatique Suivi de l’eau potable (SEP), for the French
version. These laboratories may use different forms as long as they include
all of the elements of the Ministère forms in a similar presentation format.
Water distribution system responsibles are required to retain copies of
all analysis request forms sent to their accredited laboratories for at
least two years and make them available to the Ministère upon request
(section 30 of the Regulation, last paragraph).
