The National Measurement Institute (NMI) is seeking feedback from stakeholders in the sugar industry on a proposed regulatory approach for Near Infrared (NIR) instruments. NIR instruments are an innovative alternative to the traditional trade measuring instruments, and are used by the industry for quality measurements.
The request for input opens today and closes 24 May 2019.
We encourage industry, government and community stakeholders to give feedback to ensure we consider a wide range of needs and interests.
The information we gather will help us develop a regulatory framework that will cover the use of NIR instruments. Better regulation of trade measures is also expected to promote innovation and growth in the sugar industry.
