The Artnel Henry Standards and Technical Information Centre, the only standards library in Jamaica was established to:
- Provide an information service which supports the standards development and regulatory activities of the Bureau by maintaining a collection of worldwide standards, regulations, journals, texts and other technical information that supplement the work of the organization.
- Provide access to standards and technical information to staff and external clients which include the public and private sector, students especially tertiary, business enterprises large and small, importers and exporters and the man in the street.
