HONIARA City Council (HCC) declares they are ready in ground work preparations for the standard ISO certification.
Honiara City Council Chief Health Inspector Mr George Titiulu said they are done with their preparation concerning collection of food and water samples for the implementation of the project, which was launched last year in pursuant of the ISO certification.
He said HCC has conducted a major activity that was required in the project, which involved carrying out food inspections with enough food and water samples.
Titiulu said his staff are aware of the implementation of the project and are willing and proactive when out in the field to conduct such activity because it is a major component required under the project.
“However the number of samples collected depends entirely on the working relationship we have with the NPHL, capacity and resource.
“Despite challenges we are doing this to prepare us (HCC) for the implantation of the project this month (February),” Titiulu said.
He said the project is important because things need to be done in terms of developing new changes within Solomon Islands concerning business undertaking.
“Hence HCC has to carry out this responsibility because the changes can’t take place without findings and analysis.”
HCC has liaised with the NPHL as the spearhead towards the ISO certification implementation.
