The Nepal Bureau of Standards and Metrology Closes two Cement Plants

The Nepal Bureau of Standards & Metrology (NBSM) has served notice to 16 cement plants in the market for not acquiring the Nepal Standard (NS) mark. The body has already closed two cement plants, Butwal Cement Mills and Shubha Shree Jagadamba, for manufacturing and selling sub-standard products.

"We initiated action against these factories after their products failed to meet the standard," said NBSM Director General Ram Aadhar Sah. To pass the test standard by NBSM, the cement should gain strength of 16MPa within three days of setting, 22MPa within seven days and 33MPa within 28 days. Products from Butwal Cement Mills and Shubha Shree Jagadamba were found to have strengths below these levels..
