Uganda National Bureaus of Standard (UNBS) has appealed to consumers to be watchdogs of the products flooding the market as some are counterfeits.

The manager of standards at UNBS, Akim Mufumbira, said consumers have a role to play in fighting counterfeits. He encouraged the public to report to UNBS any products they suspect could be fake.

Mufumbira made the remarks during a UNBS consultative meeting with stakeholders in Kampala.

“Please inform us of products you suspect to be illegal or fake on the market before it is consumed. You might come across products that are expired but are being sold,” he said

Mufumbira said UNBS will only build standard based on the market approach.
