A new way to measure ${\Delta \Gamma\over \Gamma}$ in the ${B^0_s- \bar B^0_s}$ System based on a comparison of the measured B0s and B0d lifetimes is introduced. This allows to use data from all the experiments simultaniously. An upper limit of ${\Delta \Gamma \over \Gamma} \le 0.24$ at 95 % CL can be given. This is below the theoretical upper limit of 0.27.
