4. Other capacity-building and training needs
Awareness related to the important issues of ISO 9,000 series, the emerging ISO 14000 series of environmental standards and the concept of eco-labelling has yet to gain ground. There is a need to for appropriate awareness and training programmes that impart adequate knowledge to officials in State agencies, as well as the private sector, on the underlying principles and procedures related to those subjects and their possible impacts on future trading patterns.
In that regard, training is needed to develop expertise in the installation of ISO 9000 quality management systems, as well as in the installation of EMS-related to the ISO 14000 series (chapter V), in the tea sector.
