Comments on concept Regionale Standaard DCRS 60 “Tobacco products – Advertising, promotion, Sale and sponsorship – Specification”09 February 2022
The SSB was recently asked by the CARICOM Regional Organization for Standards and Quality (CROSQ) to comment on the draft of the CARICOM Standard “Tobacco products – Advertising, promotion, Sale and sponsorship – Specification”. This standard has already been sent out for Public comment in September 2016, with a significant number of comments received. As a result, it took the Regional Project Team (RPT) a lot of time to process the comments. Given the long period of inactivity since the beginning of the development of the standard, the RPT has unanimously recommended that the modified draft be sent out again for comments.
As a Standards Bureau in Suriname, we would like your comments on this draft standard. We, therefore, offer you, as a stakeholder or prominent stakeholder, 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 will be 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 comments by Friday 25 March 2022 at the latest.
If you have any questions, you can contact Mr. Tanwir Hassankhan (Deputy Director Operations) on tel. +597 499928 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
