By Aaron Humes: The Belize Bureau of Standards hit an important milestone this week, marking 30 years since its formation in 1992.
The BBS, located under the Ministry of Agriculture, Food Safety and Enterprise, provides oversight for standards in the efficiency and competitive production of goods and services produced domestically or imported. They conducted sampling, testing, calibration, inspection, and certification procedures. They also ensure that regulatory requirements, such as those related to the health and safety of consumers and the environment, are met.
That means ensuring that consumers are not overcharged, sold shoddy and poor goods, and are treated generally well by the business community.
Director Jose Trejo noted in his address that “For a mandate as big as ours, much has been given, and indeed much has been required. To carry a 30-year mandate such as ours represents nothing more than hard work, dedication, commitment, and drive, not to mention talent and skills to arrive at this juncture. Perhaps an oxymoron: but while we have laboured 30 years, our work has only just begun. We say it is to remind ourselves that our work is never done and that there is really no time for us to settle, having come this far. While it is easy to be caught up with the rigours of unfinished work, I believe we can afford on this occasion a moment to reflect on the significance of this historical event as we pay tribute to the Bureau’s remarkable development and impact since its inception in 1992.”
Minister Jose Mai looked ahead, saying, “I am proud to share that the Bureau, through difficult and challenging times, remains attuned to the growing needs of modernization. Boasting state-of-the-art facilities, the Bureau has undergone significant growth and transformation and is now strengthened in its core mission to promote and support the competitiveness of goods and services, trade facilitation, and Consumer Protection.”
