Recall that the BHN has signed a binational cooperation agreement with IDOCAL to provide more knowledge and technical assistance in the areas of standardization, metrology and conformity assessment to facilitate trade between the two nations. Note that prior to this agreement, workshops on quality infrastructure in the productive sectors had already been organized as part of other projects.
During this week, the delegation of the BHN carried out an internship in the field of metrology, working with the technicians of INDOCAL, the Haitian delegation visited several Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) distribution stations, was informed about the operation of the dispensers and made measurements with the gravimeter method.
