The ruling in April came after Sprigg Investments laid complaints that the nature and effectiveness of the Electro Smart device had been called into question following the airing of the programme. Electro Smart is marketed as a power-saving device which controls geysers. In the broadcast, Carte Blanche interviewed electrical technician Raoul Coetzee, who implied the device was a mere timer and a "rip-off". Sprigg responded by saying its explanation of why the device was not a timer was not broadcast, and it had never had the opportunity to respond to the allegations.
An independent report by Sedick Arnold, an authority on the device, had also not been aired. The programme erred in reporting on an SA Bureau of Standards report which approved a device "almost identical" to the Electro Smart. The tribunal found that omitting certain information had prevented the public from making an objective decision on the device.Carte Blanche airs on M-Net (DStv channel 101) on Sundays at 19:00.
