Harmonization of Standards at Regional and International Level


The Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) is a member of various Regional and International Standardization bodies that include the following;

  • East African Community (EAC),
  • Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA)
  • African Organization for Standardization (ARSO),
  • Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC);
  • International Organization for Standardization (ISO)
  • International Electro-technical Commission (IEC)
  • The Standards and Metrology Institute for Islamic Countries (SMIIC)

As such, UNBS coordinates participation of Uganda in standards harmonization activities at these levels in order to ensure that Uganda’s interests are taken into consideration in the process.

The Participation of Uganda’s stakeholders in this process is normally shared through the national technical committees who may nominate representation. Stakeholders may also express interest or respond to UNBS call to participate by nominating and sponsoring their representatives.
