We want to hear from you! Public feedback is important in the development of Gambian Standards. An important stage in the development of a Standard is the Public Comment period. The Public Comment period is usually open for 60 days. Anyone who feels they have something to contribute to a Draft Standard should use the Public Comment Period to provide their view on its provisions. All comments are considered in detail by the relevant Committee and, if necessary, further drafting is undertaken. Individual feedback will not be given by the Committee on the comments provided.

Public commenting ends: 29th January, 2021
