The Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) has launched an operation to identify and prosecute people dealing in sub-standard goods.

Terry Kahuma, the UNBS executive director, said the operation, code-named ‘Q’ for “quality”, would also focus on traders selling expired goods. Culprits will be prosecuted.

“The task force will, with the police, survey the market, including major outlets for sellers of underweight and adulterated consumer items.

“Initially we will be targeting products like cement, electrical conduits, bread, paint, mattresses and expired foods in shops, supermarkets and warehouses over which there has been much outcry,” Kahuma said.

He said UNBS was mandated to enforce standards to protect the public. At the news briefing, Deus Mubangizi, who is in charge of the task force, demonstrated the dangers of sub-standard electrical items.
