Identity card

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.

Following a directive given to the SAQCC-Fire by the Department of Labour, an additional SAQCC-fire detection and gas suppression committee was set upto establish and implement procedures for the qualification and certification of authorised persons in order to ensure safety, quality of work and high standards of excellence within the industry.

SAQCC-Fire works closely with Certification Bodies approved by the DOL and DOL to ensure standards are met and technicians and servicing companies adhere to the law.
