National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications: improving efficiency
OUTA WANTS THE NATIONAL REGULATOR FOR COMPULSORY SPECIFICATIONS TO BE MORE EFFICIENT
OUTA is working with Business Unity South Africa (BUSA) to encourage improvement in the efficacy and efficiency of the National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications (NRCS), which is a state-owned agency of the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition.
The NRCS is responsible for the development and enforcement of compulsory specifications and technical regulations.
OUTA’s involvement follows high levels of dissatisfaction and concern among industries and business over the efficacy of the framework and its implementation.
