CABINET has approved the introduction of Trade Standards (Battery Standard) Order 2013, in Fiji.

A government statement, says the development will improve the quality of batteries sold in the country.

In his submission, Industry and Trade Minister Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said the standard would be applicable to lead acid batteries with a nominal voltage of 12V, used primarily as a power source for the starting of internal combustion engine vehicles, and commonly called "starter batteries".

He said batteries with nominal voltage of 6V were also included within the scope of the standard.

He said the standard would apply to batteries for passenger cars, for commercial and industrial vehicles for normal use; for commercial and industrial vehicles for severe use; and batteries for use in deep-cycling applications.
