  • KEBS celebrates the 43rd world standards day - 16th october 2012
    World Standards Dayis celebrated each year on 14th October to pay tribute to the efforts of thousands of experts worldwide that collaborate with International Standards Bodies like (International Electro-technical Commission (IEC), International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and International telecommunications Union (ITU),to develop International Standards that facilitate trade, spread knowledge and promote technologicaladvances.

    The theme this year is, "Less waste, better results - Standards increase efficiency".Standards are crucial for increasing efficiency, while efficiency is crucial for success in today’s challenging and competitive economic environment. This issue has drawn a lot of attention as global economies are challenged with sustainability and financial uncertainty. Optimization of resources in any organization provides a foundation for better results. Efficiency is the ability to achieve organizational objectives by implementing processes in production or services that facilitate provision of safe, functional and quality products with minimal waste, expense, or unnecessary effort. Efficiency helps organizations meet their goals as they maximize profits.

  • Notice to all Cement Manufacturers, Importers and Distributors
    KEBS has noted that cement that does not comply with the requirements specified in the Kenya standard on labeling is being offered for sale in the Kenyan market. The Kenya Standard KS 1829: 2004: Labeling of products - General Requirements, gives the general requirements for the marking and labeling of products made in Kenya and those imported into the country. The standard requires that the following information shall be indelibly and legibly displayed on products:
    1. Name of the product,
    2. Date of manufacture,
    3. Expiry date,
    4. Active ingredient content,
    5. Handling requirements,
    6. Instructions for use among others.
    Manufacturers, importers and distributors of cement are advised to ensure that the products comply with the standard before being released to the market.
