NRCS Certification
The National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications (NRCS) was established on 1 September 2008, in accordance with the provisions of the National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications Act, (Act no.5 of 2008) (NRCS Act). It's within the area of responsibility of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI). The NRCS’s certification scope includes promoting public health and safety, environmental protection and ensuring fair trade. This mandate is achieved through the development and administration of technical regulations and compulsory specifications as well as through market surveillance to ensure compliance with the requirements of the compulsory specifications and technical regulations.

The South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) is a national legal institution established under the National Standards Act of 1945 and amended by the latest edition of 2008. It is a neutral third-party certification body in South Africa, responsible for system certification and product certification in South Africa.
