The St. Kitts and Nevis Bureau of Standards (SKNBS) would like to inform the general public that it will be working on a Packaged Water Regulation.

This national regulation will establish standards for the purity, treatment, bacteriological acceptability, packaging, and labelling of all pre-packaged waters intended for use as beverages or in foods. The CARICOM Regional Code of Practice: Code of Hygienic Practice for Packaged Water will be utilized in accordance with this regulation.

The regulation will not apply to water distributed by the public water supply system, to the carbonated beverage, soda water, or to packaged water sold for purposes other than as a beverage.
