The Somaliland Quality Control Commission (SQCC) is aware that a fully functional National Quality Infrastructure (NQI) is an indispensable tool in ensuring fair trade, the safety of humans and animals, as well as protection of the environment.
Trade, Investment, food security, protection of people & the environment is crucial for the development of Somaliland as reflected in its long- and medium-term country strategic development goals.
In order to support the realization of this development, there is a need to have Somaliland standards in place and well implemented across the targeted sectors to be developed.
The Vision of Somaliland Quality Control Commission (SQCC) is to be recognized as a national center of excellence and an internationally trusted commission in offering Standards, Quality Assurance, Testing and Metrology (SQMT) services.
MD. Mukhtaar Maxamed Cali
Chairman of Somaliland Quality Control Commision
Offering well trusted SQMT services is an important driver towards achieving the targets set out in the Somaliland Vision 2030, a Vision built on five pillars of Economic Development, Infra-structure Development, Governance and Rule of Law, Social Development, and Environmental Protection.
In doing so the Somaliland Quality Control Commission will work closely with all government institutions, particularly those named in the Act establishing SQCC in order to fully realize the strategic goals set out in this plan. SQCC will also partner with regional and international standardization bodies and will collaborate with them to strengthen SQCC standardization services while also enhancing Somaliland’s visibility in Africa and beyond.
