|5. REQUIREMENTS FOR THE LABELLING OF RETAIL PACKAGES OF CIGARETTES SVGNS 1: PART 5: 2002|
|This standard has been prepared through the Caribbean Common Market Standards Council (CCMSC)* to set requirements for the labelling of retail packages of cigarettes with a health warning and tar group designation, to be used throughout the Caribbean Community.
It is based upon Trinidad and Tobago Standard TTS 21 10 500 Part II: 1989, which was derived from the draft Jamaican Standard L20/4 – Specification for Labelling of Cigarettes, and incorporates data from the United Kingdom Government’s Official Tar Tables, April 1986. The draft was circulated for comment between September 1991 and January 1992. It was agreed to by the CCMSC in June 1992 and approved by the Council of Ministers for use as a mandatory standard to give adequate information to the consumer and prevent fraud or deception.
This standard specifies the information, the method of display of such information, and the wording and presentation of a health warning to be included on the labels of retail packages of cigarettes intended to be sold in the Caribbean Community.
|6. REQUIREMENTS FOR THE LABELLING OF BREWERY PRODUCTS - SVGNS 2: 2001|
|This standard specifies requirements for the labelling of brewery products to be sold in St.Vincent and the Grenadines and in the Caribbean Common Market.
It does not cover beverages sold under the common names, including the words “beer”, and “ale”, that are not derived from cereals (for example, ginger beer, ginger ale, root beer).
|7. SPECIFICATION FOR PNEUMATIC PASSENGER CAR TYRES - SVGNS 3: 2001|
|This standard was developed to take into account the open market system which has brought an influx of used tyres into the country which compete with the sale of new tyres. There are no trade restrictions with respect to the quality of the used tyres and therefore the consumers are under the perception that they are purchasing a reliable and safe product.
This standard addresses the concern with used tyres by incorporating a section with detailed inspection and selection criteria. It has also been harmonized to the industry-accepted standard on tyres, the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, FMVSS 109 established in the United States. This facilitates international interchangeability and avoids costly and unnecessary duplication of tyre requirements.
|8. DEFINITION OF TERMS USED IN THE PNEUMATIC TYRE INDUSTRY - SVGNS 4: 2001|
|This standard contains terms that are common to passenger car and commercial vehicle tyre groups. The terminology is specific to new, used, retreaded and regrooved tyres.
The tyre industry in St.Vincent and the Grenadines has been greatly influenced by both the European and North American tyre industries. Also, with the advent of the open market system trade has been promoted across diverse borders. The purpose of this standard, therefore, is to standardize and harmonize the meaning of terms as related to the local tyre industry.
|9. SPECIFICATIONS FOR PASTA PRODUCTS (MACARONI, SPAGHETTI, NOODLE) - SVGNS 5: 2002|
|This standard prescribes requirements for macaroni, spaghetti, vermicelli, noodles and egg noodles that are made in the forms and materials described below.

|10. SPECIFICATION FOR TOILET AND LAUNDRY SOAPS - SVGNS 6: 2002.|
|This Standard has been prepared through the Caribbean Common Market Standards Council (CCMSC) to set levels of quality for soaps manufactured and traded within the Caribbean Community. It was accepted by the CCMSC in June 1992 after consideration of comments received and the draft circulated between September 1990 and April 1992, and approved by the Council of Ministers as a voluntary standard in June 1992. This standard prescribes the requirements for toilet soap and laundry soap to be sold in the Caribbean Common Market.|
