2019-08-14 - NRCS to destroy thousands of non-compliant products

MEDIA RELEASE  

 

DATE:  12 August 2019

 

TO: ALL NEWS EDITORS AND JOURNALISTS 

 

RE: NRCS to destroy thousands of non-compliant products

 

Members of the media are invited to witness the destruction of sub standards products by the National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications (NRCS).

 

The NRCS has over the years collaborated with various stakeholders such as the Department of Energy, the South African Revenue Service (SARS), the South African Police Service (SAPS), and the United Nation Development Programme (UNDP) to ensure that regulated products entering the country comply with legal requirements.

 

In collaboration with these stakeholders, the NRCS confiscated hundreds of thousands of incandescent and compact florescent lamps from various ports of entry worth millions of rands. These products were found to have contravened the technical and administrative requirements of the NRCS Act no 5 of 2008, including their failure to meet the set minimum energy efficiency requirements, which results in adverse effects on the environment. The non-compliant products will be destroyed in line with the NRCS mandate of protecting human health, safety, the environment and ensuring fair trade.

 

Details of the Destruction Function are as follows:

 

Date: 14 August 2019

Venue: E-waste Africa, 102 Shortts Retreat Road, Mkondeni, Pietermaritzburg

Time: 10h00

 

For media interviews, please contact Daniel Ramarumo on 012 482 8870 / 065 887 4355

 

ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL REGULATOR FOR COMPULSORY SPECIFICATIONS (NRCS).
