PRESS RELEASE September 30, 2019

Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards gears up for World Standards Day


Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards (SLBS) undertakes activities in commemoration of World Standards Day (WSD), which is observed every year on October 14th. World Standards Day this year is being observed under the theme, “Video standards create a global stage” a reference to  how standards have been critical to developments in video technology which have expanded opportunities for advances in medicine, entertainment, and social interactions between people where ever they are in the world.


In Saint Lucia the observance will focus on awareness activities which highlight the importance of standards in various sectors of the economy, to include beauty and wellness, construction, agriculture and environment.


Four workshops and a series of media events, to include an address to the nation by the Minister with responsibility for the SLBS Honourable Bradley Felix and the annual Sir Arthur Lewis Community College engagement will take place to commemorate the observance.


World Standards Day is a means of paying tribute to the collaborative efforts of thousands of experts worldwide that develop the voluntary technical agreements that are published as International Standards. 


The Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards would like to invite you to our activities and the important world of standardization on Thursday 3rd October at 10am at the SLBS Bisee.

 For further information, please call Head of Department – Information, Mrs. Virnet St. Omer-Fontenelle at 453-0049/720-8756/453-0339
