In his opening remarks, he pointed out that the importance of equipping the Area Inspecting Engineers is to ensure that all relevant standards and specifications in electrical installation are maintained. When the Area Inspecting Engineers are ill equipped, they cannot perform, thus, the function of enforcement of standardswould not be achieved without equipment.
