Please note that South Africa has published a new regulation VC9008 to control the energy efficiency and labeling of electrical & electronic products.

Products & Standard
* Products that are already on the market and approved by NRCS for safety requirements have to comply with this regulation from 28 November 2015 on.

We would also like to inform you that NRCS accepts test reports issued by an accredited and internationally recognized body being a member of an IAF/ILAC/IECEE mutual recognition scheme in accordance with the NRCS's conformity assessment policy. DEKRA test reports are accepted, thus DEKRA can help you get access to this market, also for Energy Efficiency.

The validity period of the LOA will be three years and it can be extended for another two years.
