2021-04-07 - NRCS extends exemption period for manufactures and importers of registered chemical disinfectants formulations

The National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications (NRCS) hereby notify manufactures and importers of chemical disinfectants (industry) of the extension of exemption period from 20 April 2021 to 20 October 2021 for registered chemical disinfectant formulations.

 

This was done through issuing a Sales Permit in line with section 14(4) of the NRCS Act No. 5 of 2008 on 10 March 2021, granting a further six (6) months extension to holders of valid Letters of Authority (LOAs) / Registrations of (VC 8054:1999), new compulsory specifications for chemical disinfectants.

 

This extension is granted to ensure the following:

 

  The depletion of chemical disinfectants stock that will not meet the requirements of VC8054:2017;

  Additional time for the NRCS to process the large number of applications for extension of registrations that were received by 20 October 2020, and;

  Additional time for holders of registrations to receive their NRCS Letters of Authority REGISTRATION EXTENDED certificates and to mark their chemical disinfectants with the new NRCS registration numbers.

 

The NRCS will thus issue no further sales permit extensions after 20 October 2021.

 

Enquiries regarding the  extension of the deadline  should  be sent to  the following email address: cmmapproval@nrcs.org.za before the set deadline of 20 October 2021.  

 

For media interviews, please contact Mirriam Moswaane on 012 482 8826 or 083 364 2007

 

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