Product Certification

The product Certification is an attestation following assessment that; attributes, characteristics, quality, or status of goods, are in accordance with established standards. The scope covers foods and beverages, construction materials, cosmetics, paper based products and other industrial products.
Certified Products are given a Standardisation Mark (S-Mark), to be displayed on the product.

Benefit of Product Certification

•    Displaying the mark gives a product real point-of-sale differentiation resulting in more sales and greater revenue;
•    The Mark provides credibility when negotiating any contract especially government contracts as reflected in Rwandan regulation, exports and tender submissions;
