The Belize Bureau of Standards (BBS) is the national standards body responsible for promoting efficiency and competitive production in goods and services, with Quality Infrastructure (QI) serving as the foundation in achieving this objective. The pillars of Standardization, Metrology, Conformity Assessment (sampling, testing, calibration, inspection, certification procedures) and Accreditation combined, serve to ensure that goods and services, whether produced domestically or imported, meet established regulatory requirements, such as those relating to the health and safety of consumers and the environment. The Bureau is essentially responsible to protect, secure and safeguard the welfare of the country, a function carried out through the Consumer Protection Unit and the Supplies Control Unit.
The BBS website will allow the Department to raise awareness and increase the level of understanding amongst the General Public as to the importance of national and regional quality infrastructures in both the societal and economic well-being of Belize.
