Angolan IANORQ (Angolan Institute for Standardization and Quality) is the national entity in charge of coordinating quality standards all over the country. The work of that institution affects directly consumers’ interests, which may be not totally preserved. An opportunity to make some progress in that situation is improving legal metrology in Angola through capacities transference.
A solution to this challenge would be to strengthen capabilities, skills, competencies and technologies of Metrology Department of IANORQ. In order to reach that end, a complete assessment of more than 4,000 scales and fuel pumps took place in 18 provinces. As a result of that evaluation, the need for knowledge about the adjustment of the instruments was detected. Once the experts had that information, the elaboration of a technical regulation of scales was prepared taking as parameter the regulations in force in Argentina and Brazil.
