FERM Products are NRCS Compliant

FERM Products are NRCS Compliant

Posted: 23rd August, 2019  - Written By: Zain Moosa

All FERM products sold in South Africa comply to both South Africa and European safety standards. Not only do our tools have built in safety features, such as: anti-vibration handles and non-locking switches, they also have passed all the compliance and safety assessments issued by the NRCS.

Who is the NRCS?

The NRCS is an entity of the department of Trade and Industry established to administer compulsory specifications and other technical regulations with the view to protect human health, safety, the environment and ensure fair trade in accordance with government policies and guidelines. The ELECTROTECHNICAL department of the NRCS ensures the safety and energy efficiency of electrical and electronic apparatus, components and related products offered for sale in South Africa. The safety and environmental requirements are based on internationally accepted standards. It is appointed by the National Department of Labour as the approvals body for electrical products and components of domestic and industrial low voltage electrical installations.

All importers of power tools must apply for a Letter of Authority for every power tool they intend to import and sell in South Africa. The NRCS evaluates each application to ensure that the product adheres to strict safety norms and standards. CIB Partners has a LOA for each product in the FERM range.

So all our products are compliant and safe you use in South Africa. By choosing FERM, you can be sure that you are choosing a safe and compliant product!
