Ghana Standards Authoritity SENSITISED by RTI commission.

The Right to Information (RTI) Commission, on Friday, 13th May, 2022, sensitised the Management and Staff of the Ghana Standards Authority(GSA).

The sensitisation was was organised to educate both Management and Staff of GSA to know about their obligations under the Right to Information Act, 2019 (Act 989)
The sensitisation was done in two sessions: Morning and Afternoon sessions. The morning sessions was organised for only Management while the afternoon session was for other Staff.

After the sensitisation programme, the Head of Legal, Governance, Regulatory, and Research of the RTI Commission, Stephen Owusu Esq., on behalf of the Commission, presented some educative materials about Act 989 to GSA.

Stephen Owusu Esq., in presenting the educative materials, encouraged GSA to make use of the materials so as to broaden the understanding of Management and Staff about Act 989. That, according to Stephen Owusu, Esq., would aid GSA not to fall foul of the law since falling foul comes with legal consequences.

Deputy Director-General in charge of General Services, Mr. Bernard M. Akoto-Ampaw who received the materials on behalf of GSA, exhorted the Right to Information Commission for the great works the Commission is doing and assured the Commission that GSA will do all within its powers to be abreast of Act 989 so as to make the implementation of the law a great success.
He further indicated that, his outfit would, as soon as possible, arrange for another sensitisation programme with the RTI Commission for the Management and Staff of GSA to have enough education on Act 989.
