World Consumer Rights Day (WCRD)
WCRD was established on 15 March 1983 to promote consumer rights around the world. For WCRD 2014, we are calling on CI Members and Supporters to highlight the consumer issues that are undermining and frustrating the success of this new technology.
ZABS has schemes in place that ensures that consumers are protected. One of the schemes is the product certification mark where products that fall under mandatory standards are subjected to testing and once the pass, a mark signifying compliance is placed on such protects.
World Metrology Day
World Metrology Day celebrates the signature by representatives of seventeen nations of The Metre Convention on 20 May 1875. The Convention set the framework for global collaboration in the science of measurement and in its industrial, commercial and societal application. The original aim of the Metre Convention - the worldwide uniformity of measurement - remains as important today, in 2013, as it was in 1875.
ZABS through its Metrology Department houses national measurements and this places ZABS on a strategic position to ensure that industries are accurate measurements through calibration services that is offered.
World Standards Day is celebrated internationally each year on 14 October.  The day honours the efforts of the thousands of experts who develop voluntary standards within standards development organizations such as theInternational Electrotechnical Commission (IEC),International Organization for Standardization (ISO),International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). The aim of World Standards Day is to raise awareness among regulators, industry and consumers as to the importance of standardization to the global economy.
ZABS through the Standards department ensures that Technical Committees (TCs) come up with standards that are helpful and protects the consumers at the same time giving industries a leverage to quality products.
