Product Certification

Product certification is a powerful marketing tool. It gives products added value and differentiates them from similar products in the market place. It is the procedure by which an independent body (third party) gives written assurance that a product conforms to specified requirements which are contained in a National Standard.

The Certification Division of TTBS certifies products to national and Caricom standards. Products certified bear the Trinidad and Tobago Standard Mark displayed above. The Standard Mark certifies that a product consistently complies with a specific national or Caricom standard.

A certified product carries the Trinidad and Tobago Standard Mark.
