Aligning Mozambique’s National Quality Infrastructure Report

Why does Mozambique need a National Quality Infrastructure?

Quality is a pre-requisite for Mozambique’s economic success; it is well-recognized that standards, technical regulations and over burdening testing and certification requirements (Technical Barriers to Trade) can be major impediments to domestic production, international trade, foreign investment, consumer protection and economic growth. Mozambique’s domestic industry needs to demonstrate that they are capable of producing high quality, safe goods and services for domestic and foreign markets. This demonstration is carried out by implementing a National Quality Infrastructure (NQI) which is guided by the country’s National Quality Policy.
