South Africa has launched several national nanotechnology initiatives to strengthen and position the country’s capabilities in this field. Industrial areas that benefit from nanotechnology are mining and minerals, chemical and bio-processing, and advanced materials and manufacturing.

However, the development of nanotechnology in South Africa is hampered by many barriers such as regulation, standards, health & safety issues, and public perception. Standardisation is an integral part of implementing the national development plan.

In addition to publishing standards on nanotechnology, the country needs to continue with efforts to publicise and cultivate information on nanotechnology to ensure the sustainable development of the sector. 236049@aN2GdSJ-xnxkCgTYBArkrSpdQiJmgLFEMNPdKqh_pz0.@” target=”_blank”>Webinar contents here.

Standard to Guide Social Media Emergencies

The South African Bureau of Standards (SABS), through its technical committee, has adopted the ISO 22329 standard that provides guidance on the use of social media during an emergency or crisis.

SANS 20079: Vehicle Steering Equipment

This Regulation intends to establish uniform provisions for the layout and performance of steering systems fitted to vehicles used on the road. Traditionally the primary requirement has been that the central steering system contains a positive mechanical link between the steering control, usually the steering wheel, and the road wheels to determine the vehicle’s path. The automatic link, if amply dimensioned, has been regarded as not being liable to failure. 236060@aN2GdSJ-xnxkCgTYBArkrSpdQiJmgLFEMNPdKqh_pz0.@” target=”_blank”> READ MORE
