Mrs. Dianne Lalla-Rodrigues, Director


Greetings! The staff of the Antigua and Barbuda Bureau of Standards (ABBS) are on a quest to facilitate the development of the standards infrastructure of our twin-island nation, and welcome your participation and inputs into this process.

Our website has been designed to make pertinent information about the standards landscape in Antigua and Barbuda more accessible, while providing useful opportunities for you to give feedback about our current work program, events and activities that we host from time to time. We further look forward to your interactive participation in the standards development process by making use of the message board facility provided with the standards posted for your comments.

It is our pleasure to extend this service to you and we look forward to your keen interaction as we work with you for a safer and more progressive Antigua and Barbuda. Enjoy!
