SLBS issues Standards for Public Comment
The Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards [SLBS] is soliciting feedback from the public on a series of standards to be adopted as Saint Lucia National Standards. The standards are concerned with requirements in the areas of Labelling of Commodities, Short Term vehicle rentals, graphical symbols, Weldable Reinforcing Steel, fused plugs, outlets and adaptors. This is one of the most critical steps in the standards development process to ensure that the standards, once implemented, reflect the views and input of a wide cross section of the public, in particular the industry which will be immediately impacted by the application of the standard.
The series of standards being circulated for comment are mostly revisions and with one new area that of vehicle rentals receiving attention for the first time.
The public comment stage for these standards is aimed at capturing the comments of stakeholders and the general public in order to identify and address areas of concern and to ensure that consensus on the contents of these standards is achieved before adoption.
Two of the standards, labeling and vehicle rentals will be available online at www.slbs.org.lc,for comment, the other standards will only be available at public libraries, upon a request to the Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards, the Chamber of Commerce, the Ministry of, Commerce, Industry and Consumer Affairs, the Government Documentation Centre, or the St. Lucia National Archives.
The deadline for receipt of comments is Thursday 12th March 2015.
