South Africa’s new plug standard – what to expect from ZA Plug in 2017

During 2016, the Electrical Contractors’ Association of South Africa, the ECA(SA), told MyBroadband South Africa’s (actually it is SA's adoption of the new international standard) new plug standard would become semi-mandatory.

A proposed amendment to the wiring code requires that from March 2018, all outlets in new installations must include at least one socket that complies with SANS 164–2.

SANS 164–2 (or ZA Plug) has the same hexagonal profile as the Europlug seen on cellphone chargers – but allows for an earth pin.

Cecil Lancaster, regional director of the ECA(SA), said the new draft of the code was circulated for public comment and there was no comment on making ZA Plug semi-mandatory.

However, comments received on other items resulted in changes forcing the consultation process to be repeated.

This may result in a delay in the publication of the amendments, which means they may also reconsider the implementation date of March 2018.
