In order to prevent and reduce the dumping of regulated products into Botswana market, three levels of inspection are employed as illustrated below. The objective of inspections are to protect the consumer from hazardous products (both health and safety), to protect the environment and to prevent potential deceptive practices. These inspections are an intervention in this whole process of product conformity program, whereby the conformity status of regulated products on the market is established. Through this process of inspections, nonconforming products can be identified and removed from the market. Inspections also serve as a means through which the performance of Recognised Inspection Bodies (RIBs) recognised through the SIIR Recognition Scheme can be monitored through the traceability of inspected products to the Inspection reports the (RIBs) have issued to the importers.
Nonconforming services and manufacturing facilities on the other hand, through these inspection can also be identified and be advised accordingly to adhere to the compulsory standards.
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.
