The CITA (International Motor Vehicle Inspection Committee) Africa RAG Meeting was held on October 30, 2019, in Marrakesh, Morocco, featuring a presentation from SGS​ Global Head of Regulated Services, Thomas Revillard.

The purpose of the presentation was to discuss the impovements of road safety initiatives in Africa and, more specifically, Periodic Technical Inspection (PTI) of vehicles, including reinforcement of PTI's in the 54 countries of Africa and the extension of PTI capabilities to two and three-wheeled vehicles.
