The Bahamas Bureau of Standards & Quality (BBSQ) was established by the government to work with industry, and business to enhance quality of products and services, and align national standards with international and regional standards — all towards a more vibrant economy.

In commemoration of ‘World Metrology Day,’ BBSQ set up a booth at Super Value, Golden Gates, on Friday, 20th May to highlight the occasion and bring awareness of the importance of metrology to the general public and the economy.  A similar booth was set up the day before at the store’s Mackey Street branch.  This year’s event was celebrated under the theme, “Metrology in the Digital Era,” and focused on the transition from analog devices to digital devices of measurement. Metrology is the science of measurement and plays a key role in scientific discovery and innovation, impacting every aspect of life including industrial manufacturing, international trade, the environment, quality of life.   Pictured are: BBSQ Metrologist, Brendon Johnson and Inspectors, Nicollette Burrows, Makiah Swaby and Vinesa Sawyer.
