Speakers at a discussion here on Tuesday stressed that the capacity of Bangladesh Standards and Testing Institution (BSTI) must be scaled up to provide timely services for proper quality control of consumer products. Delay in the results of the standard testing by the regulator has been an obastackle to ensuring the consumer’s right to have quality products, they observed. Addresing the discussion, titled ‘International Standards Ensure Positive Change’, they called on the BSTI officials not to encourage any tendency of dishonesty, caused by the causeless delays of the results of standard testing of consumer products. The discussion was organised by BSTI at Maan Bhaban at Tejgaon.
