Why this project?

The Republic of South Sudan faces several challenges. To govern effectively, the country needs to establish effective state institutions as a basis for economic development and poverty reduction. As a country dependent upon imports, with limited exports beyond oil revenues, a modern and efficient Bureau of Standards aligned with South Sudan’s trading neighbours is of importance.

How:

TMEA will provide technical assistance to SSNBS to support development of legal and regulatory framework and training SSNBS and non SSNBS quality officials. Procurements and contracting will be done by TMEA.

Desired Results

South Sudan National Bureau of Standards simplifies and increases the transparency of import/export procedures; producers improve the quality of products produced; bureau of standards staff and producers improve their understanding of standards and requirements. This will in turn lead to the national bureau of standards improving efficiency and effectiveness of testing.
