Type of Standards


This Botswana standard specifies requirements for four grades of emulsion paint that are based on synthetic polymers dispersed in a water phase and that are supplied in a matt, semi-matt or semi gloss finish, for application over interior plaster or other masonry substrates, as one or more coats of the same grade. Three grades are suitable for both interior and exterior use, and one grade is suitable for interior use only. It is accepted that there are other satisfactory end-uses for these paints, either by themselves or in systems in combination with other types of paint, but the scope of this standard does not include their use in such systems or their application over wooden, metallic, glass, plastics, off-shutter concrete, or bituminous substrates. In such cases, this standard will only apply to the paint as supplied, not to its end-use.

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.
