Namibian Standards Institute (NSI) certified Ohorongo Cement’s products for fulfilling the requirements of the Namibian Standard NAMS/EN 197-1:2014.

NAMS/EN 197-1:2014 gives specification and conformity criteria for common cement. The scope of certification covers five types of cement manufactured by Ohorongo Cement: CEM II A-LL 42.5N, CEM II B-LL 32.5N, CEM II B-V 42.5N, CEM I 42.5R, and CEM I 52.5N

The NSI CEO, Chie Wasserfall, handed over the certificate to Ohorongo cement’s Divisional Production Manager, Jaspis Ndjago during the inauguration of the Composite Cement plant and 3rd Packaging line.

Wasserfall explained that this certification will allow Ohorongo Cement to enter the Zambian and Botswana market without additional certification and inspections. “Ohorongo Cement will be allowed to use the marks of conformity on the specified cement types. This gives customers and end-users peace of mind whenever purchasing or using the cement on which the NSI mark appears,” she said.

Deputy Minister of Mines and Energy, who witnessed the event, said this certification provide the industry guidance related to standards compliance.

“It also further strengthens our credibility as a nation, that in as much as we invite investors to invest here, that they must produce products that are of world class and quality,” she said.

Hon. Shilunga also congratulated Ohorongo Cement for being one of the few cement manufacturing companies in the world to receive ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 Certifications.

ISO 9001:2015 certification confirms that Ohorongo products are of the highest quality, as measured against international standards, while the certification on ISO 14001:2015 confirms their continued commitment towards sustainability and caring for the environment.
