The aim is to safeguard public health and follows the failure of some registered packaged water to pass NAFDAC’s laboratory analysis.  The testing is carried out annually using modern mobile laboratory techniques and includes monitoring of water quality standards by conducting on-site physio-chemical and microbiological quality test analysis at all packaged water manufacturing facilities.
