Standards Authority lifts suspension at Abyssinia factory

Standards Authority lifts suspension at Abyssinia factory
Published: 19 May 2009

Abyssinia Cement Factory, Ethiopia, a private establishment in Chancho area, was last week given the go-ahead by the Quality and Standards Authority of Ethiopia (QSAE) to restart manufacturing and marketing its cement products.

Laboratory results from sample examinations of Abyssinia’s products have shown that they are up to standard, so the QSAE lifted the about 49-day long temporary suspension of the factory last Wednesday, May 13, 2009.    

The QSAE had temporarily suspended Abyssinia from operations on March 27, 2009, following an alleged quality problem - the authority had alleged that the cement produced by Abyssinia did not fulfil some requirements in the production of cement.
