The Director of the Bureau of Environmental Health in the Northern Marianas says new labelling regulations have been triggered by concern that consumers are being misled.
All processed food and drinks, including bottled water will have to meet new labelling requirements to enter the Northern Marianas by June.
John Tagabuel says under the new regulation, the food and drink label should have English, Chamorro or Carolinian language on it.
The information panel of food and drinks will also be required to contain the brand name of the product, ingredients, net amount, and nutritional facts and various contact information.
Mr Tagabuel says businesses in the CNMI have been worried about product labelling for a while.
"There is a lot of concern brought out by the business sector about mis-labelled imports and there's a big competition in Saipan, in the Marianas itself, about water. The industry itself is big and there's a lot of imported bottled water that is not labelled in one of those three languages."
