Nepalese cement certification delayed

Print this page

Nepal: Government plans to grade domestic brands of cement have been delayed due to administrative issues at the Nepal Bureau of Standards and Metrology (NBSM). The NBSM prepared a draft for the certification in the autumn of 2016 but it has failed to approve it internally before forwarding it to the Nepal Standard Council, according to the Himalayan Times. The delay has been blamed on the busy schedule of NBSM employees. Under the plan, cement produced by local companies will be certified under three quality categories: 33-grade, 43-grade and 53-grade cement.
