Afghanistan first time owns product standard mark

Afghanistan first time owns product standard mark

Jun 20, 2016 - 18:44

KABUL (Pajhwok): The Afghanistan National Standards Authority (ANSA) on Monday for the first time introduced a standard certification mark to ensure quality domestic products.

ANSA head, Naqibullah Faiq, told a news conference here Afghanistan for the first time owned a standard mark, a move that could lead to a great change in the country’s economic development.

He said certified quality mark would be used in all domestic products that contained high quality.

“I assure our people that no products of low quality could be marked, no pressure or any favoritism would be acceptable for products certification,” he said.

Faiq added Afghanistan’s standard certification mark was apparently like a mark of other companies, but the mark would represent trust and quality of products of a country.

He said Afghanistan products earlier exported to Europe and Russian markets were returned. He added all high quality products in future would be marked and then exported to foreign countries.

A product passing the standard quality would be not returned after their export to international markets, he said.
