This new draft SANS 10146 standard is now available for public comment. The purpose of updating the standard is to create a benchmark for the laundry industry as a whole. Once the standard has been finalized it will be submitted to the NRCS (National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications).

Once the NRCS has adopted SANS 10146 the laundry industry is likely to be regulated to ensure compliance with the requirements of the compulsory specifications and technical regulations of SANS 10146. The new regulations will have an impact on your business.
