The development of national standardization strategies (NSS) is part of the activities in the ISO Action Plan for developing countries. The development of an NSS helps rationalize the use of limited resources in standardization work. In doing so, it help countries identify national priorities and ensure that resources are used to develop standards for the priorities of the country.

The Gambia Standards Bureau in 2017 began work on developing the National Standardization Strategy 2018-2020. On 20th February, 2018 the strategy was validated. This Strategy informs the development of a national standardization plan for the next three years. The standardization Plan consists of the required standards to be developed in 2018, 2019 and 2020. These Standards are assigned under 12 Technical committees
