IMPLEMENTATION OF THE BOS 126:2018 STANDARD ON MILK & MILK PRODUCTS – ULTRA HIGH TEMPERATURE TREATED COWS MILK

Botswana Bureau of Standards (BOBS) through the Standards Act of 1995 is mandated with ensuring implementation of Compulsory Standards. The above stated Standard, BOS 126:2018 Milk and milk products – Ultra high temperature treatment cow’s milk – specification , was gazetted a compulsory Standard through Government Gazette, No. 344 dated 13th May 2019

BOBS therefore wishes to inform the public, the business community and stakeholders affected by Botswana standards; BOS 126:2018 Milk and Milk products – Ultra High Temperature ; that enforcement of the standard will take effect on the 1st August 2020.

It thus follows that evidence of compliance to BOS 126:2018 will be required prior to placing the product on the Botswana market. Prior to importation of the UHT milk, application must be made with Botswana Bureau of Standards with test reports showing compliance to BOS 126:2018 requirements. For local manufacturers of the same product inspections, sampling and testing of the product against the same product will be done as per the BOBS Local Manufacturer’s Regulatory Scheme.
