Standards development activities, facilitated by the BSJ, are carried out by some 29 technical committees covering a wide range of fields in the goods and services sectors. In 1984, the BSJ established a National Certification Mark Programme, awarding the BSJ mark to goods of consistently reliable quality and which conform to Jamaican Standards.
Standards development (national, regional and International Standards); conformity assessment - inspection, testing, calibration, certification, monitoring, registration; metrology (scientific, industrial, legal); training; consumer protection through the standards compliance/import monitoring programme and provision of technical information to manufacturers, exporters, traders, government officials, consumers and the general public.
The BSJ also serves as the WTO/TBT National Enquiry Point and FAO/WHO Codex Alimentarius Commission Contact Point.
