Standardization vital for quality assurance - LEA

As per Local Enterprise Authority (LEA), the quality of goods and services entering the market is poor, since many industries do not implement the correct standards to promote the quality of goods and services.

The Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) had organized a workshop, Textile and Clothing with a theme as, 'Promotion of standards and quality is our priority' at Marang Hotel last week. During this workshop, LEA's acting branch manager, Balisi Sehlulane, averred the aforesaid fact about poor quality of products and services.

Sehlulane has requested all shareholders of the textile and apparel firms to take benefit of the available and accessible BOBS resources. According to him, this will help improve efficiency, quality of goods and services within their profession.

More so, Sehlulane believes that, with the help of standardization, quality assurance can be provided to the consumers. The workshop also aided in the official launch of 15 woven household fabrics and article standards, which were fixed by the textile and clothing technical committee of BOBS.

Formulation of these standards was commenced by various Botswana-based apparel producers, so that they could manufacture apparels as per global standards.

The existence of BOBS is to safeguard public interests and customers by promoting better quality of goods, especially fashion and fabric designers, as they get cheated by several suppliers. And hence, Sehlulane feels that if designers are aware about the standards required by BOBS, it will be easier then to recognize the quality of materials.

As per Senior Standard Scientist of BOBS, Poppy Kgabung, manufacturers should not hurry to enhance their standards. They should be well aware about all the required and important standards, so that bigger brands in the country can then purchase or give them tenders. If manufacturers don't follow or get used to the standards now, then it will be difficult for the nation to move forward.

More over, Kgabung also stated that, designers must safeguard their designs with copyright laws as they are unable to craft similar designs, as even when asked to do the same thing, there is always a difference. As a textile and apparel manufacturer one must be able to differentiate between the quality of fabrics with just the naked eye.
