Comments on CARICOM Standard “Paints – Solvent-borne coatings – Specification”.

The SSB was recently asked by the CARICOM Regional Organization for Standards and Quality (CROSQ) to provide us with comments on the concept of the CARICOM Standard “Paints – Solvent-borne coatings – Specification”.

As a Standards Bureau in Suriname, we would like your comments on this draft standard. We therefore offer you, as a stakeholder or prominent interested party, a copy of the aforementioned standard, with the request to comment on it and to inform us of your findings. The composite result of all findings is sent to the secretariat of CROSQ after integral processing.

As you further know, after the final approval of this standard by the Council for Trade and Economic Development (COTED), the standard will be regionally established by CROSQ, after which it is also expected to be adopted by the SSB as a National Standard. We therefore urge you to contribute to this standard through your comments, as only in this way are we able to be heard by CROSQ and communicate our vision and views.

You can make your comments using the attached comment form. We will receive your comment by Monday 05 July 2021 at the latest. You can email these to

If you have any questions regarding this letter, please contact Mr. Tanwir Hassankhan (Head of Standards Development) on tel. +597 499928 or by email:
