GSA TO INTRODUCE IMPORT CERTIFICATION OF ELECTRICAL CABLES IN 2019
The Ghana Standard Authority (GSA) will from January 2019, introduce an import certification for all imported electrical cables into the country, the Director General of GSA, Professor Alex Dodoo has hinted.
Professor Dodoo made this known in an interview, after a meeting with the Consumer Protection Agency (CPA) and the Ghana Electrical Dealers Association (GEDA) to disclose the list of electrical products that have failed or passed its critical parameter tests. He said, “we are going to do our best that come January, when you buy an electrical product, you will have a mark, which will indicate that we have inspected and endorsed them.”
This is subject to the approval of government. Professor Dodoo noted that from the GSA’s market surveillances, close to 80 percent of all the products sampled are sub-standard.
