Suitable methods are those that are rapid and convenient, but at the same time cost effective, and considered appropriate for microbiological testing of one or more of the following sample-types: meat and allied foods, potable water or the waste-waters produced during food processing.

The manual includes tests for organisms (or their products) that indicate microbiological contamination and/or satisfactory hygienic control of processes and for specific identification of spoilage organisms or pathogens.
