RSC HUB

 

HOST ENDORSER:

 

 

 

 

 

This year, we worked closely with one of our key partners The Electrical Conformance Board of SA (ECB) , Their focus and efforts on our new theatre gives a voice to the regulatory, compliance and safety side of the electrical industry. We call it the RSC Hub!

 

With agreed speakers from government, industry organisations and prominent standards makers of the country and world, the RSC Hub will help to clarify standards, components and installation methods for small and large properties. With the rising damage to costly equipment due to poor workmanship and non-compliant components, The RSC Hub is your ideal opportunity to access the right knowledge and contacts to ensure safety is the first concern for all involved. 

 

Gain first-hand knowledge and expertise on topics like the upcoming SANS 101042-1 Edition 3 release, the soon-to-be-released solar standard, hybrid installation, electrical qualifications, compliant components and much, much more.
