Basseterre, St. Kitts, October 14, 2022 (SKNBS): The St. Kitts and Nevis Bureau of Standards (SKNBS) recognised Island Purified Water for their continuous efforts in ensuring the health and safety of their consumers in a brief but significant ceremony on October 14, 2022, at the bureau’s office at La Guerite.

The presentation falls in line with World Standards Day (WSD), which offers an opportunity to raise awareness and increase understanding of the importance of standardisation. It is a collaborative initiative of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

Island Purified Water was presented with a certificate of achievement for meeting the requirements outlined in the National Standard for Packaged Water. The company purchased the packaged water standard in 2020 and has since then followed the requirements, which includes performing microbial and chemical testing on their products to ensure safety, conformity and quality. Since purchasing the standard and following suggestions made by the bureau, their product has improved significantly. The company’s labelling is also in line with the St. Kitts and Nevis Labelling Standard.

To qualify for such a certificate, businesses must purchase and follow the requirements of the standard.

Companies wishing to purchase these or any other standards, which have been adopted by St. Kitts and Nevis, can visit the bureau’s office at La Guerite, email or call 869 467 1498.
