NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The Bahamas Bureau of Standards and Quality (BBSQ) and the Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and Employers’ Confederation (BCCEC) is hosting a three-day workshop to educate local manufacturers about how to package and label products that comply with European legislation.


The virtual workshop, which runs from November 2-4, is open to manufacturers throughout The Bahamas who wish to export their goods to the European Union (EU).


Bringing opening remarks, Renae Bufford, BBSQ director, said: “As the principal national authority for standards and quality, the BBSQ prides itself on advancing development through the facilitation and promotion of quality services for local businesses.


“As the preeminent resource and advocate for local businesses, the BCCEC aims to drive effective change for the entire business community. So, it is no surprise that members of both organizations would create a three-day forum to discuss the logistics of packaging and labelling goods for the EU market.”
