Rwanda Standards Board (RSB) laboratories have been awarded with an international certificate in recognition of the institution’s efforts in providing accurate and efficient measurements systems in industries, trade transaction and safety. The award was awarded by Germany Accreditation Body (DAKKS), one of the World’s leading accreditation bodies.

It is through the cooperation that started in 2015 between RSB’s National Metrology Division and Germany Metrology Institute (PTB) which aims at strengthening metrological services in Rwanda.

The certificate was awarded to three laboratories testing Mass, Balance and Temperature Calibration.

Speaking at the event this Wednesday, the RSB Director General, Raymond Murenzi said that the certificate adds value to Rwanda’s laboratories and locally made products.

“When a product is tested from these laboratories, results will be the same with those tested from other international laborites,” he said.

He said that it is a big achievement since they started to train staff and buying decent materials towards meeting international standards.

“It will facilitate the country to export reliable Made in Rwanda products. Some people used to question them, but today we hope to export well standardized products” Murenzi added.

The PTB project coordinator, Florian Paffenholz commended RSB’s commitment to meeting standards requirements and urged to continue the trend in daily activities.
