The Industrial Policy Action Plan (IPAP) views the development of capacity for technical infrastructure activities as an intervention involving the co-ordination and cooperation of technical infrastructure activities such as standards, metrology and accreditation and conformity assessment services within South African industries.
The capacity to comply with international standards, norms and technical regulations underpins the potential for economic and industrial growth and is a precondition for industrialisation efforts with respect to standards, accreditation, conformity assessment and compliance. Tightened standards and conformity assessments are therefore of great importance in government and state-owned companies (SOCs).
ICCASA supports and facilitates South Africa’s strategic and economic imperatives as reflected in the IPAP.

ISO 45001:2018 OH&S Management System (Published 12 March 2018) Click here
An organization’s activities can pose a risk of injury or ill-health, and can result in a serious impairment of health, or even fatality, to those working on its behalf; consequently it is important for the organization to eliminate or minimize its OH&S risks by taking appropriate preventive measures. While ISO 45001 draws on OHSAS 18001 – the former benchmark for OH&S – it is a new and distinct standard, not a revision or update, and is due to be phased in gradually over the next three years. Organizations will therefore need to revise their current thinking and work practices in order to maintain organizational compliance.
