The Ghana Standards Authority has extended its testing service hours to satisfy customer needs of quick turnaround times.
Testing services in the areas of Engineering, General Chemistry, Polymers, Textiles, Gold and Petroleum Products will be available on weekdays from 6 am to 10 pm. Prior to this, the Authority was providing testing services on weekdays from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
Director of the Authority’s Physical Sciences Directorate, Clifford Frimpong, said the extension is in line with the FDA’s vision of becoming a customer-focused world-class standards organization, bringing Metrology and Conformity Assessment services to the doorsteps of the public. He said a special exercise has begun to enhance the implementation of the Ghana Building Code.
Mr. Frimpong said industry players, as well as the public, can now have all their building and construction equipment tested in record time adding that officers from the Authority, will visit factories of the building industry to conduct specific tests.
