About Us - Strategic Objective

NRCS STRATEGIC OBJECTIVE

 

Strategic Goal One: To develop, maintain and administer compulsory specifications and technical regulations

 

The NRCS will increase the scope of regulatory coverage by identifying and developing new

compulsory specifications that provide the optimal balance between the needs of the consumers and

the South African industry in compliance with the NRCS’ mandate.

Resources will be dedicated to maintaining a range of compulsory specifications and technical

regulations in accordance with IPAP milestones, government priorities, industry requirements and

market analysis by the NRCS. Through this process the NRCS will conduct impact and risk

assessments to determine the feasibility of developing new compulsory specifications, technical regulations, the revision and amendment of existing ones and withdrawal of the compulsory

specifications or technical regulations in consultation with relevant stakeholders.

 

Strategic Goal Two: To maximise compliance with all specifications and technical regulations

 

The NRCS will increase compliance with compulsory specifications and technical regulations through

pre-market approvals, market surveillance and sanctions where non-compliances has been

identified, utilising the risk-based approach, border enforcement strategy, inspection at source and

benchmarking of business models. A number of regulatory interventions will be implemented to

reduce the availability of non-compliant products in the market. These interventions will include the

traditional NRCS on-site inspections, enforcement investigations, awareness briefings or

communication, and desktop inspections. An inspection of quality will have the desired impact at the

source of the product. A quality assurance process will randomly check that these interventions

comply with inspection quality standards.

 

Strategic Goal Three: To inform and educate our stakeholders about the NRCS

 

NRCS strongly believes that awareness of the role of the regulator and compliance requirements

contributes significantly to voluntary compliance. This goal will be achieved through effective

communication initiatives, the shaping of perceptions through the media and, targeted training and

awareness campaigns.

A positive, credible, professional image of the NRCS will shape attitudes towards compliance. A

respected regulator who is perceived to be fair and effective and to hold sufficient power to enforce

compliance is likely to be a deterrent to potential transgressors.

 

Strategic Goal Four: To ensure an optimally capacitated institution

 

This goal will be achieved when the NRCS effectively and efficiently utilises all available resources

in the most optimal manner. The NRCS will have:

• A Human Resource capacity that is highly engaged, skilled and competent

• An IT Platform that supports the business

• Sound financial management and supply chain management systems

• Sound and effective support structures

• Sound and effective governance structures
