SLBS Celebrates 25 Years of Operation


2015 marked 25 years of operations of the Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards.  The SLBS marked the occasion with a number of activities to include a Standards and Business Development Showcase at the SLBS’ headquarters in Bisee.

The SLBS and partner agencies   presented  their  products and services to the public in what was an exciting and interactive forum supported by agencies of the Trade Export Promotion Agency TEPA, the Small Enterprise Development Unit SEDU of the Ministry of Commerce and the Basic Needs Trust Fund.  The idea behind the showcase was for the creation of a one stop opportunity for anyone with an interest in acquiring business development services as well as an opportunity to demonstrate the success of those who have accessed services from the agencies.

The showcase  involved an exhibition of the products and services of the agencies above as well as the showcasing of the products of local manufacturers who have benefitted from services from the agencies of SLBS, TEPA,and SEDU.  The BNTF was on hand to provide information to those with interest on options available for financing of their business.

Director of the Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards Dr. Mkabi Walcott said the SLBS was using the 25th Anniversary celebration to re-energize the relationship between the service providers involved, clients and the general public.  She defined the objectives of the showcase in terms of enhancement of  awareness, credentials and/or capabilities, reinforce the network of services available in business development, promotion of the use of standards and conformity assessment for business success, the generation of  new prospects for certification and other services, the promotion of  the quality of locally made products to a wide audience and the demonstration of trust in and support for local manufacturers.

Exhibitors included agro-processors, bottled water companies, health and beauty services and bakery products.  They were encouraged to showcase  a range of their products and were not limited to products which carry official marks or seals.  However, all products on show were  a derivative of a service received from the coordinating agencies, ranging but not limited to seals, marketing, packaging, business plan development and business counseling.
