Message from the Executive

The year 2020 will go down in history as the year of global disruption that affected all sectors and citizens with significant socio-economic impacts. It has tested our resilience, our ability to adapt and articulate appropriate responses whilst identifying and implementing opportunities which are underpinned by innovation, agility and importantly digital transformation at an unprecedented pace.

As a founding member of ISO and a member of the IEC, the SABS celebrates its 75th Anniversary in 2020, embracing a rich history of International, Regional and National standardisation activities. 

These activities align acutely to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs), the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA), our National Development plan including the reinvigorated industry priority sectors, respectively. The development and publication of relevant South African National Standards provides knowledge, information and solutions to support industry and policy objectives. As part of our 75th Anniversary the SABS would like to recognise the dedication and participation of our members of technical and sub-committees that drive the engine of technical solutions to address socio-economic challenges and opportunities.

Thank you for embracing the new normal of stakeholder engagements through virtual platforms in the process of developing national standards.

I would like to wish you a restful holiday season in the weeks to come, stay safe and be well.
