TBS Counsels Manufacturers

Tanzania Bureau of Standards (TBS) has asked local manufacturers to comply with environmental and international standards to guarantee their survival in the highly competitive global commercial scenario.

TBS Director Mr. Daimon Mwakyembe told attendants of a seminar for human resources managers recently that failure to comply with the environmental management system stipulated in the International Organization for Standardization’s ISO 14001 standards would render them uncompetitive.

He also said that tourists and immigrants might also reject locally manufactured products unless the manufacturers and developers complied with standards that were globally recognized. Mr. Mwakyembe was officiating the fifth training session on implementation of the Environmental Management System, which was held in Arusha recently.
