How are standards developed?
- Tuesday, 11 September 2012
Standards are developed by bringing together all interested stakeholders such as manufactures, sellers, buyers, users and regulators of a particular material, product, process or service.
Development of Uganda Standards is carried out through Technical Committees. A Technical Committee is established to deliberate on standards in a given field or area and consists of representatives of all interested stakeholders.
Draft Uganda Standards adopted by the Technical Committees are widely circulated to stakeholders and the general public for comments. Comments received are reviewed and considered before the draft standards are presented to the National Standards Council for declaration as National Standards.
