Date: September 24th, 2021.

The Trinidad and Tobago Bureau of Standards is pleased to announce that Ms Andia Persad-Maharaj, Standards Officer, Standardization Division has been awarded the prestigious ISO Next Generation Award.

The Award was announced by the ISO President, Mr Eddy Njoroge at the 2021 ISO General Assembly meeting which was hosted virtually by the British Standards Institution (BSI) over the period 22nd to 24th September 2021.

The year 2021 was the first time the award was offered to ISO members, making Ms Persad-Maharaj its first recipient.  

The Next Generation Award is one of the ongoing activities within ISO designed to recognize current young professionals from ISO members in standardization who embody the values of sustainability-driven standardization. The Award seeks to attract new generations through the incentive of career development opportunities in standards development. The ISO Next Generation Award, is made possible through the generous sponsorship of past ISO President, Dr. Zhang Xiaogang.

Based on Andia’s winning submission to ISO, Andia highlighted her passion and deep conviction for the use of standards to address sustainability changes facing our global society: “When I think of sustainability, I hear the determined voice of one of our local activists as she whizzes about on her motorized wheelchair, I feel the sand of the beaches my family loves to visit, and I see my someday daughter. Our work in standards brings hope, safety and growth for this generation and the future. I am honoured and delighted to be awarded the ISO Next Generation Award and to partner with ISO and its Member Bodies continue to partner to create a common sustainable future for all”.

According to Mr Derek Luk Pat, Executive Director, TTBS, “This Award certainly builds capacity both for Ms Persad-Maharaj and TTBS regarding exposure and engagement with ISO and its Member Bodies. This is a significant accomplishment for Andia, TTBS and the country”.

TTBS’ mandate is to develop, enforce and promote standards in order to improve the quality and performance of goods produced or used in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. This award recognizes the outstanding work done by one of TTBS’ very own.
