The minister was speaking to the press at the opening ceremony of workshop on "Confidence in Construction Sector in Angola".
The event is running in the light of the World Accreditation Day’s festivities, celebrated on June 09.
The minister said that the institutions were created to ensure good quality of the products made available for consumption.
According to the official, the country has institutes that monitor the standards and quality of the products.
She said that Angola is taking increasingly significant steps towards improving the quality of our products despite the IAAC existing for few time.
IAAC has an agreement with Inadec, an institution that deals with the consumer protection.
She added that the accreditation is governed primarily to ensure compliance of the bodies or companies tasked with accrediting the laboratories.
The event is held under the initiative of the Angolan Institute of Accreditation (IAAC), in partnership with the Angolan Institute of Standards (IANORQ) and the Civil Construction and Public Works Regulatory Institute (IRCCOP).
The objective is to create factors of approach on issues related to accreditation.
The workshop is attended by members of the Angolan Government, industrialists and professionals from various areas.
