By BBN Staff: The Belize Bureau of Standards ( BBS) gathered several public and private
sector entities at the Mexican Institute in Belize City for the observance of the 2018 celebration of World Standards Day.
The BBS celebrated the event under the global theme, “Emerging standards and the fourth industrial revolution.”
Entities such as the Ministry of Trade, Department of Cooperatives, Quality Poultry and
Brodies attended the event, where the BBS unveiled its new slogan, redesigned website and the results of its poster competition held earlier this year.
Jose Trejo, director of the BBS, said that the new website was built with money from the 10th European Union Development Fund, while the slogan, “Protecting, Promoting and Improving Development,” was decided
by various entities that partnered with the BBS.
The poster competition was catered primarily to students at the tertiary level but was also open to the general public for participants between the ages of 18-23.
“We’re still trying to ensure that there is an uptake of standards at the national level for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises,”Trejo said. “We want to ensure that standards become mainstream.”
He added that larger companies in Belize are already employing standards in their various manufacturing processes, and daily operations, which has increased their overall quality and competitiveness.
