The South African Qualification & Certification
Committee (SAQCC) Fire is an industry-elected body, established
to ensure that servicing and maintenance of fire protection equipment
is conducted according to the specifications laid out in SANS
1475 and, more importantly, that technicians have the correct
training, qualifications and experience.

offered, please click
The formation of the SAQCC (Fire) came about originally
as a result of consumer complaints and a lack of control and
legislation regarding the fire industry. Click

By law, CO2 fire extinguishers
must be pressure tested at SANAS accredited test stations approved
by the Department of Labour, and a certificate issued as proof. Click
