KATHMANDU:- The Nepal Bureau of Standards and Metrology has punished six industries for not adhering to the Nepal Standards.
The decision to penalize the industries was reached after a sample taken of the goods produced by those industries showed that the quality standards were not met. The samples were collected during a surprise monitoring carried out in the local market.
