Nepal: The Nepal Bureau of Standards and Metrology (NBSM) has removed Nepal Standard (NS) certification of two cement brands marketed by Ambe Cement. Hi-Tech OPC Cement and Ambe Premium OPC Cement have had their certification cancelled, according to the Himalayan Times newspaper. The NBSM has also restricted the company from selling these brands locally. The government body says it found slag in the products despite requiring producers to only include clinker and gypsum in Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) products.
