About Drinking Water Quality Surveillance Program
In response to the need for a realistic and appropriate set of guidelines regarding safe and potable water supply throughout Malaysia , the Drinking Water Quality Surveillance Unit, Engineering Services Division, Ministry of Health Malaysia prepared a set of guidelines. This was done under the guidance of experts from the World Health Organization, Western Pacific Regional Centre for the Promotion of Environmental Planning and Applied Studies (WHO)/PEPAS. A panel comprising of representatives from Public Works Department (PWD), Department of Chemistry (DOC) and Department of Environment (DOE), which are agencies directly or indirectly involved in the surveillance of drinking water quality in this country, was formed to vet through this set of guidelines, after which the National Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality 1983 was published.

The following year saw the launching and implementation of the National Drinking Water Quality Surveillance Programme throughout the nation resulting in an increase in the number of workers involved in water quality.
