Antigua and Barbuda to participate in review of a Regional Paint Standard

2014 - December - 31

The Antigua and Barbuda Bureau of Standards will be hosting a consultation for the review of the draft CARICOM paint standard on Thursday January 08, 2015 from 9:30am – 11:30am, at the office of the Bureau on Old Parham Road.

The Specification for paint – interior and exterior – emulsion type – flat is currently under review and the CARICOM Regional Organization for Standards and Quality – CROSQ has requested Antigua and Barbuda’s participation in this important process.

The Bureau of Standards is mandated to employ a transparent standards development process, and has therefore already distributed the draft standard to key stakeholders, requesting comments to be submitted to the Bureau, by Tuesday 6th January 2015. The comments received will be featured in the consultation – assisting Antigua and Barbuda to meet obligations under regional and international trade agreements and treaties.

All interested producers, traders and consumers of paint products are therefore invited to contact the Bureau at Tel 462-2424 or abbs@antigua.gov.ag to register their participation.
