The committee has completed discussions and adopted/adapted the following draft standards (click to here download).


    The draft standards are international standards (ISO) being proposed for adoption/adaption as Uganda Standards. They are now being presented to the general public to provide comments on their suitability for implementation. Persons who would like to access copies of the drafts may obtain them from the UNBS Information and Resources Centre at Standards House Bweyogerere. The committee would be glad to receive comments on these draft standards to be submitted from 19th April to 19 May 2016. It would be appreciated if who find the draft Uganda Standards generally acceptable, and have no specific comments to make, notify UNBS accordingly. Details comments may be provided on the comments, identifying the number of the clause(s) to which they refer. Suggestions entailing revision of the text should indicate the preferred wording.  All correspondences on these draft Uganda Standards should be referred to the Manager Standards Department UNBS, for the attention of John Kyazze.
