Prishtina [Pristina], 25 April: Trade and Industry Minister Bujar Dugolli signed into effect the administrative directive for organizing and functioning of the Kosova Standardization Agency [KSA], which will deal with accrediting, standardization and ensuring of quality of industrial products.

The minister also has allocated a budget of 60,000 euros for the KSA for 2005.

Minister Dugolli said that the KSA will make sure that the European Standards in terms of quality are applied. "This agency will accredit institutes who will deal with control of products quality," Dugolli said.

In addition, this agency will be a great help for citizens, who often were victims of bad quality, to assess and know the worth of products.

The ministry of trade and industry is cooperating with the Institute for Enterprise Management and Engineering and with the Kosova Chamber of Commerce for better functioning of this agency.

The KSA will be run by the board, which will have an executive director. The standardization, accreditation, and meteorology units will have a director each.

The board is to announce a job vacancy for the position of chief of executive soon.

This will be the year of beginning of the KSA work and of training of its staff, whereas as of the next year the KSA will start with licensing of labs and certification of products that will be launched in the market.

If we judge the output based on the input, it seems that standards will be very low
