Imported Pakistan cement 'meets SA standards'
NO EVIDENCE has been found of inferior cement being imported, the National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications has said.
Chief executive Thomas Madzivhe said the NRCS had given samples to the SA Bureau of Standards (SABS) for testing.
"They came back to us and said they have done all checks and tests that they can do. They said this cement complies with our regulations in South Africa."
The complaints were raised by the local cement production industry against Lucky Cement Limited, Pakistan's largest cement producer.
The acting executive of non-perishable products at the NRCS, Musa Ndlovu, said the SABS had been carrying out annual inspections at Lucky Cement , as stipulated.
