The Adam Equipment weighing scales and balances we sell have been independently tested to meet the Compulsory Specification for the Safety of Electrical and Electronic Apparatus – VC8055 and have the NRCS letters of authority. Many scales and balances currently being imported into South Africa by others do NOT meet the standards.
Adam Equipment is a major global manufacturer of scales and balances to a high quality standard; our products had been tested to meet both the EC and SA safety standards. In South Africa, NRCS decided that to meet legal requirements testing had to be carried out by an IEC approved testing laboratory with letters of authority from NRCS required for importation, Adam have the LOA’s.
Many other scale importers do not conform. When you buy products do you know they meet the safety standards? When a supplier does not confirm that their products are approved should you take the risk, what if it is unsafe and a results in a claim? A cheap purchase now might prove to be an expensive mistake later. Before buying, ask if the product has an LOA from NRCS to make sure you are buying a product that meets the compulsory specification for the safety of electrical and electronic apparatus.
