Revision of standards: Jeremy Kellett’s report has been circulated to all members of the committee. Work had started on the SANS 10400 standard but it had to do with storm water. The T and W-section of SANS 10400 will only be discussed again next year. The demarcation made by DOL in respect of who can sign off designs will hopefully take place; thereafter a change to section A of the standard will be required.

SAQCC - Detection & Gas Suppression: Mr Radmore reported on the recently held FDIA meeting that they are currently facing problems with sub-standard cable that was being imported into the country, similar to the problem FFETA had with fire extinguishers. This has been reported to the SABS and DOL for further investigation.
