Drinking water quality standards describes the quality parameters set for drinking water.
There are no universally recognized and accepted international standards for drinking water.

Drinking water quality standards in Australia have been developed by the Australian Government National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) in the form of the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.
