Bureau of Standards Jamaica
The BSJ Standards Development Work Programme is published in order to meet the requirements specified in Appendix 3 of the Code of Good Practice for the Preparation, Adoption and Application of Standards as per the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) Technical Barriers to Trade Agreement (TBT). BSJ’s Work Programme was first published in April 1996 and is published twice each year, in April and October.
The Work Programme contains a list and status of draft standards which are presently being developed/adopted/revised; classification of the drafts according to the International Classification for Standards (ICS); international standards considered in the development of the draft standards; and a list of standards published since the last publication of the work programme.
A complete list of all standards published by the BSJ is contained in the Catalogue of Jamaican Standards which is published every two years.
The BSJ Catalogue of Standards features almost 500 standards including over 150 mandatory standards and technical requirements. The standards are available for purchase in both hard and soft copy format.
