30/1/13 - CABINET APPROVES STANDARD FOR BATTERIES SOLD IN FIJI

1/30/2013
Cabinet has approved the introduction of Trade Standards (Battery Standard) Order 2013, in Fiji. This is to improve the quality of batteries sold in the country.

Cabinet based its decision on a submission by the Attorney General and Minister for Industry and Trade, Mr Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

The Attorney General said that the Standard will be applicable to lead-acid batteries with a nominal voltage of 12V, used primarily as a power source for the starting of internal combustion engine vehicle, and commonly called “starter batteries”.

He said that batteries with nominal voltage of 6V are also included within the scope of the standard.

He also said that the Standard will apply to batteries for passenger cars; batteries for commercial and industrial vehicles for normal use; batteries for commercial and industrial vehicles for severe use; and batteries for use in deep-cycling applications (e.g. marine use, taxis and coaches).
