The commissioning follows significant upgrades by the BNSI and Government to retrofit the national measurement laboratory.  

The laboratory has been outfitted with additional equipment through support from the Caribbean Development Bank’s (CDB) EPA and CSME Standby Facility for the Capacity Building project entitled: Strengthening of the Regional Quality Infrastructure Programme in Barbados, Dominica, and St. Kitts and Nevis.

In addition, some of the new services of the laboratory were made possible by the support of the European Union, through the CARIFORUM and CDB offices.
