Country: South Africa

The South African Bureau of Standards (SABS anno 1945) a founding member of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), SABS has built a reputation globally as a long-standing and widely respected role player in international standardisation, and the leading standardisation body in Africa.

SABS is a statutory body that was established in terms of the Standards Act, 1945 (Act No. 24 of 1945) and continues to operate in terms of the latest edition of the Standards Act, 2008 (Act No. 8 of 2008) as the national standardisation institution in South Africa, mandated to:

*            Develop, promote and maintain South African National Standards (SANS)

*             Promote quality through in connection with commodities, products and services

*             Render conformity assessment services and assist in matters connected therewith.

Standards and the methods used to assess conformity to standards are unquestionably critical to our national development and wellbeing. South Africa’s technology infrastructure hinges on it, whether for industry and commerce, health and safety or the nation’s economic performance.
