Guiding Principles and Values

In the delivery of its mandate and fulfilment of its strategic vision, The Gambia Standards Bureau adheres to the following principles and values:

  • Principle 1: Standards development will be driven by the needs of stakeholders and Gambian Standards (TGSB) will only be produced where appropriate.
  • Principle 2: Standards development will follow internationally-recognized procedures for the preparation, adoption and application of standards.
  • Principle 3: TGSB shall be informed by internationally-recognized good practices to resolve the conflicts of interest foreseeable in its programmes and activities.
  • Principle 4: For TGSB to be successful and continue to be relevant as facilitator to industry and trade, it should not mix any regulatory functions in its portfolio.
  • Principle 5: TGSB follows core values of transparency, integrity, inclusiveness and consensus- building.
