Government is developing certification and quality standards for the transport sector in order to reduce road accidents

The Government is developing certification standards and metrology quality for the transport sector in order to reduce road accidents, guarantee safe services and boost the national economy. According to AIM, the action is being carried out by the National Institute for Standardization and Quality (INNOQ), an institution protected by the Ministry of Industry and Commerce (MIC).

To this end, INNOQ joined yesterday, businessmen from the transport sector and cooperation partners to find better ways to measure and standardize the quality of services. The meeting also served to mark the World Metrology Day, held under the motto “Measurements for transport”.

According to the Deputy Minister of Industry and Commerce, the reflection arises from the fact that the services provided in the area of ​​public passenger transport are below what would be desired, due to the high accident rates. Accidents occur mainly in land and sea transport, most of which are due to lack of quality. “Every day, there are accidents resulting from the lack of standardization, measurement and certification of the cars that are on track,” said Ragendra de Sousa.

The minister recalled that transportation is a key sector for the economy, and therefore represents a major challenge for INNOQ. “INNOQ’s intervention in the transport sector is significant because the measurement, certification and quality standardization allow the system to work in a balanced way,” he said.

The governor admitted that there were positive signs, citing as an example the obligation of the cars to be submitted periodically to the inspection. Still, Ragendra de Sousa questioned the fact that some passenger vehicles and private vehicles have vignettes that prove they have been inspected, even though they have serious deficiencies. “This is yet another example to realize the role and importance of measurement done with professionalism,” he said.

Ragendra also made reference to the short life of a car in Mozambique, compared to the United States, for example. He explained that this is because in the USA there is a system of standardization and quality that works properly.
