‘Medas’ to be standardised

By Penlope Sikazwe

The Zambia Metrology Agency -ZMA- says it will make standardized measuring tins mandatory.

ZMA Executive Director HUMPHREY NKOBENI says standardized measuring containers will gradually replace the makeshift tins commonly referred to as medas in the markets and other tins that are not authorized.

Mr. NKOBENI says this follows a successful pilot project that was carried out as tins were distributed to selected markets across the country for those trading in beans, rice and kapenta.

He says the agency will first engage local manufacturers to produce the proposed measuring tins at a large scale in order for all traders to be able to have access to them.

Mr. NKOBENI was speaking to ZNBC News in an interview.
