Thursday, December 18, 2003 - The Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards and the Office of Private Sector Relations (OPSR) have collaborated in the implementation of a new project called “Enhancement of the Competitiveness of the Private/ Industrial Sector through Quality Control and Certification.”

A release from the Office of the OPSR states that the project was devised to assist the Bureau in delivering improved services to the local business community.

The two parties will formally sign a Memorandum of Agreement on Monday December 22, 2003, which will put into effect the disbursement of EC$ 400, 000.00 for the project.

The OPSR has committed $240,000.00 to conduct four activities, including training sessions in Food Safety, Quality Control and Certification as well as the verification of electricity meters.

Further the Bureau will assist the private sector in its maintenance of international quality and standards for locally produced goods and services.
