Type of Standards


“”This Botswana Standard specifies the requirements for three types of solvent-emulsion degreasers containing detergents and organic solvents. The degreasers are intended for the cleaning of painted and unpainted surfaces of components, machinery and engines that are soiled with oil, grease and similar soils, and on which water may be used during the cleaning process. The degreasers are not intended for use on electrical equipment, delicate machine parts, rolling element bearings, winding steel cables, or aircraft and aircraft components. NOTE As solvent-emulsion degreasers can contain solvents that are detrimental to health, it is recommended that these cleaning compounds be used in well-ventilated areas using the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and that prolonged inhalation of the vapours and contact of the cleaning compound with the skin and eyes should be avoided.”

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.

When things don't work as they should, it often means that standards are absent.
