Organization for Standardization to enforce 400 new quality standards by year’s end

The Trade and Industry Ministry’s Organization for Standardization & Quality (EOS) is planning to enforce around 400 new quality standards across several industries before the year is out, EOS head Ashraf Afifi tells Amwal Al Ghad. EOS has already enforced 410 standards since the beginning of the year, according to Afifi. Meanwhile, the Trade and Industry Ministry is also looking to enforce this year a quality standard that would curb bribery and corruption across government and non-government bodies alike, according to Minister Amr Nassar.
