NB: Policy Document 2/2006 centralized the Command and Control of the Inspectorate. National Head Office of the Inspectorate no longer had to conduct Inspections but had to set standards and guide inspection teams at provincial level in terms of the quality and focus of inspections. Hence, Head Office reflects no inspections done since 2007. The only types of “inspection” done by Head Office are Interventions, i.e. an inspection wherein the inspecting team temporarily assumes full control of some or all parts of a station with a view of showing management of that station practically how to manage.
(b)
