Iran, Ghana standard organizations sign accord
Tehran, The Iranian and Ghanaian standard organizations signed an executive plan on Saturday in Tehran to expand commerce, according to which the standards of the goods in the two countries will be consistent.
The agreement was signed by Assessment Deputy of Iran's National Standard Organization Moslem Bayat and Ghanaian Deputy Executive Director Charles Amoako.
'Three years ago, an agreement was signed by the Iranian Standard Organization and the Ghanaian embassy in Tehran to expand trade, which entailed that the two countries' standard organizations recognize the common grounds and propose an executive program,' said Bayat.
'The agreement includes standardization, legal measurement, and assessment of imported and exported goods.'
He said because the Iranian national accreditation center is member of the International Accreditation Forum (AF) and the Iranian National Standard organization is a member of the board of directors of International Standard Organization (ISO), training and exchange of experts are included in the accord as well.
Because Iranian Standard organization is a member of 11 international bodies and Ghana is also a member of many of them, having a joint approach can be helpful in making decisions, said Bayat.
