Type of Standards


“This Botswana Standard specifies guidelines aimed at a uniform approach to the implementation of speed humps. The standard deals specifically with the 3.7 m long speed humps, typically between 80 mm and 120 mm high, and not with the smaller 0.5 m long speed bumps that are typically between 100 mm and 150 mm high. The latter (i.e. speed bumps) are not suitable for use on public roads, and are therefore only recommended for shared space environments. The guidelines highlight the following issues: a)an overview of the concepts and philosophies behind the implementation of traffic calming; b)procedure which local authorities and developers can follow when deciding on the implementation ofspeed humps; c)the relevant limitations of and warrants for speed humps; d)the various types of speed humps and the possible modifications in order to achieve the desired results; e)standardized dimensions, layouts, spacing and other design criteria that are associated with speedhumps; and
f)the need for monitoring their effectiveness after implementation.”

The Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) understands the importance of impartiality and confidentiality in carrying out its management system certification activities. BOBS management is committed to gaining and maintaining the reputation, credibility and ultimately, confidence of its stakeholders in rendering its certification services. Additionally, BOBS strives to continuously manage foreseen potential conflicts of duty and interest and ensures objectivity of its activities under the management system certification. To achieve the above, BOBS shall identify, analyse, record and manage potential conflict of duty and interest to ensure that certification services are not provided within relationships that have been identified to pose an unacceptable threat to impartiality. An Impartiality Committee shall periodically review activities of the certification function to verify commitment to credibility and fairness. The Committee shall further assist in the development of policies relating to impartiality of providing certification activities. BOBS is committed to maintaining in strict confidence all information accessed while rendering the certification services and shall ensure that such information is not divulged to third parties without the Client’s written consent unless if required by law.
