Costa Rican cement producers appeal against certification requirements

Costa Rica: Cemex and Holcim have appealed against the Ministry of Finance, Industry and Trade over new certification requirements, reports Global Cement

Cemex has explained that its cement has been accredited since 2005 and it presented all necessary documentation on 10 April 2015 following a request from the Ministry.

Cemex believes that government authorities have made a series of errors in their procedures and asked for the necessary corrections, according to local media.

Holcim Costa Rica has made assurances that it adheres to technical requirements and every year the national technical standards institute (Inteco) certifies its cement. Holcim will appeal against the government decision for new certification.

Cement importer Sinocem has not appealed against this resolution, so it will have to present its certification in six months.
