Chairperson, thanks to all participants in the debate and for the support for this important piece of legislation.
On the question of capacity to enforce, let me say that the Bill itself provides for a fee structure which is similar to the fee structure which the National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications, operates on at the moment. That's a combination of public funding and the fees which are requested from the industry itself.
As far as enforcement is concerned, even if we got all the money that we could wish for, we are not going to be able to deal with enforcement through the mechanism of routine surveillance. The way we have to deal with this is by working smart, by intelligence-driven enforcement, and by building partnerships with affected stakeholders.
At the moment the NRCS is involved in setting standards which prescribe, for example, that paraffin stoves are supposed to be ones which, if they fall over or are knocked over, are not supposed to spill all the fuel and set fire to the entire settlement or all the buildings around it. They are supposed to be ones where the flame goes out as the thing falls over. We have plenty of others that are trying to enter the market and the NRCS is doing a good job intercepting those. It also deals with electricity apparatus, crash helmets, food products, medicines and all kinds of things which do not meet the specifications.
The way we do it is that we work in partnership with the Revenue Service. We also call on the industry players, who know what is outcompeting them because the standards are low. We are all for those kinds of partnerships. That's how we are going to work with responsibilities in respect of legal metrology as well.
With respect to the question raised by hon James about breathalysers and weighbridges in the Western Cape, we deal with those matters in the spirit of co-operative governance, and the department concerned should approach us. I heard it first when hon James raised it. If the department concerned would like to contact us, we will, of course, consider their presentation. Thank you very much. [Applause.]
Bill read a second time.
