The Rwanda Standards Board (RSB) has urged all Small and Medium Industries in the country to seek for certification of their products as a way of creating trust among clients and enable them deliver their products and services to international markets.

The call was made yesterday in a discussion between RSB and small industries’ owners that are participating in the 2017 Made in Rwanda Expo at Gikondo ground.

The RSB Director General, Raymond Murenzi said that having standardized products will help to mitigate any effects that their products could cause to consumers and help them enter the international markets.

“The reason for encouraging exhibitors to get product certification from all corners of the country is to discuss about standardization, for them to know their responsibilities and seek ways of improving exports on regional or international market through standardized and certified products,” Murenzi explained.

Jean Paul Ntezimana who produces wine from sweet potatoes said that he has been operating in the past three months without standard certification. He said; “now I noted that with certification there is value added to my products not only on local but also on the international market.”
