South African SANS 164
The South African standard SANS 164 Plug and socket-outlet systems for household and similar purposes for use in South Africa defines a number of derivatives of BS 546. The main household plug and socket is defined in SANS 164-1, and is essentially a modernised version of the 15 A BS 546 (the essential differences are that pins can be hollowed to reduce the amount of metal used, the dimensions are metricated, and it is rated 16A).
