Celebrating 26 Years in Service !

The Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) launches revised standards in Uganda.

Systems Certification

A Management System is a company’s structure for managing its processes and activities that transform inputs of resources into a product or service which meets the company’s objectives while satisfying the customer's quality requirements, complying with regulations, meeting environmental and public health objectives.

If a manufacturer’s quality management system meets the relevant standards, then consumers are assured of a quality product once the standard for the product has been agreed upon.

Final inspection of a product is not usually a reliable way of assuring that the product will give the desired performance and/or satisfaction. It is a well-known fact that the required level of quality can only be built into the product through management of processes. A properly established Quality Management System will help reduce costs, improve the conformance of the product to the requirements of standards and create an image of being a reliable supplier.

UNBS adopted a number of ISO Management System Standards and has embarked on Certification of Management Systems for enterprises.  These include certification to the following Management Systems:

  • Food Safety Management Systems in accordance to US-ISO 22000:2005.
  • Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points System (HACCP) as per US 130:1999.
  • Quality Management Systems as per USISO 9001:2000 and (9001:2008).
  • Environmental Management Systems as per ISO 14000.
  • Occupational Health and Safety Management System as per ISO 18001.
