SLBS and CROSQ in joint consultation

GIS: The Consultation Familiarized Stakeholders with the Technical Content of the Standard.

Saint Lucia was the venue for a consultation organized jointly by the CARICOM Regional Organization for Standards and Quality (CROSQ) and the Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards (SLBS) on the Draft CARICOM Regional Energy Efficiency Building Code.

The code, which was circulated regionally to national standards bodies for comment, is soon to be discussed at a workshop with industry stakeholders.

The consultation’s objectives were to provide stakeholders with background information on the standard and the rationale for its development, to familiarize stakeholders with the technical content of the standard, to document stakeholders’ critical inputs into the standard for the consideration of the Electrical and Electronics Technical Committee, and to make stakeholders aware of the impact of such standards which may become a regulation.

Invited stakeholders who discussed the draft building code included construction and engineering professionals, regulators, consumer representatives and policy makers.

The stakeholder consultation took place on Thursday, Oct. 19, at the Bay Gardens Hotel.
