Standards

The Grenada Bureau of Standards (GDBS), established under the Standards Act of 1989, is the national agency responsible for the development and promotion of standards for the improvement of goods and services produced or used in Grenada.

What is a Standard?

A standard is a precise and authoritative statement of the criteria necessary to ensure that a material, product or procedure is fit for the purpose for which it is intended. Standards therefore ensure safety of the consumer, as well as protection against deception caused by misleading marketing of a product or service. Standards also provide a yardstick against which products or services could be evaluated.

Grenada currently has 139 national standards of which 24 are mandatory by law. Standards are developed on a consensus basis, through the work of local technical committees. These committees comprise of persons from various interest such as producers, consumers, technologists and other professionals from both private and public sectors.
