Summary of the proposed Action : 1. The Need For the Action
IPractitioners depend mostly on importation of spare parts for their daily operations. However it is regrettable to note that as a result of the government policy on trade liberalization, all kinds of spare parts including fake ones find their way into the country.

2 Proposed Solution to the Constraint

  • In the short term, there is the need to sensitize members of the profession by way of educating them on how to make right choices of spare parts for their operations.
  • In the long term the need for an intensive nationwide advocacy programme to alert policy makers of their constraint cannot be over emphasized.
  • 3. Implementation Plan

  • NORWOA intends to make a formal appeal to the policy makers to have a second look at the trade liberalization bill on importation with particular reference to refrigeration and air condition parts.
  • In the same way we deem it necessary to fall on the Ghana Standard Board (GSB) to come out clearly on this issue vis--vis the way forward.
  • Workshops and seminars would be organized to sensitize members on the need to make right choices whenever they make their purchases on spare parts.
  • (a) All these measures can only be carried through successfully by way of extensive publicity both in the electronic and print media as well as round table talks.

    4. Expected Impact
  • Inferior spare part imports into the country will be reduced
  • Improve practitioners business operations and standard of living.
  • Government will generate a lot of revenue from the sector as practitioner business boom
