  13th February , 2024     HITS: 902


The Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS), led by the Deputy Executive Director in charge of Standards, Ms. Patricia Bageine Ejalu, has hosted Kenya National Accreditation System (KENAS) delegation headed by the CEO, Mr. Martin Chesire, in collaboration with Uganda National Accreditation System (UGANAS) aimed at boosting collaboration and capacity building for the operationalization of accreditation services in Uganda by UGANAS.

Part of the KENAS delegation was the Commercial Attaché-Kenya High Commission in Uganda.

Operationalization of UGANAS is envisaged to provide easy access of credible accreditation services in Uganda, thereby reducing the cost of accreditation of conformity assessment bodies such as Certification bodies, Inspection bodies, Testing Laboratories, Medical Laboratories and Calibration Laboratories.
