Institute of Ethiopian Standards to Streamline Access with New Online System for Manufacturers


The Institute of Ethiopian Standards (IES) has began work to implement a new system that allows manufacturers to purchase essential standards electronically. This shift from a physical to an online platform streamlines access to standards, potentially expediting the production process for Ethiopian manufacturers.

Previously, manufacturers were required to visit the IES in person to acquire these standards, a necessary step before beginning production. The new online system will eliminate this physical barrier, allowing manufacturers to purchase the standards they need remotely and proceed with product preparation and production based on these established guidelines.

Standards are currently issued for seven sectors by a technical committee composed of 112 members. Additionally, 402 institutions, including research bodies, universities, and manufacturing organizations, collaborate with the institute through this committee.

IES' score functions include developing Ethiopian standards, providing technical support and training related to these standards, and conducting research and studies to inform the development of new and improved standards. A team of experts across the nation contributes to the creation of these standards, ensuring product quality and safety.
