Our History

The Gambia Standards Bureau was established by the Government of the Gambia through an Act of Parliament in 2010 called The Gambia Standards Bureau Act. The Bureau itself began operations in October 2011.The Bureau is overseen by a Board of Directors which is currently chaired by an independent private individual. Its membership is specified in the Act and is composed of representatives of Government, Consumers, Private Sector and Academia. The Board determines the overall policy and strategy of the Bureau including its finances.

The Bureau is headed by a Director General who is also responsible for its day-to-day operations. The DG is an ex-officio member of the Board.

Please find details of the TGSB Act on the menu policies & strategies.
