It is a legal requirement for all persons servicing fire extinguishers – or installing, servicing or commissioning fire detection or gas suppression systems – to be registered as an authorised person with the SAQCC-Fire. Registration needs to be renewed annually and the correct fees paid in full. Failure to comply will result in the technician being de-registered.

Should you have any questions regarding the registration of qualified persons, please contact the Administrator on tel. 011 455-3157 or email
