Recognition of Professional Bodies


Recognition of Professional

SAQA is responsible for the recognition of professional bodies and registration of professional designations for the purposes of the NQF Act, no 67 of 2008.

Prospective Professional Bodies seeking recognition must send their request through a formal letter on the organisation letterhead to the following email address:

SAQA runs four compulsory workshops for prospective professional bodies per annum. After receipt of the letter, an invitation will be sent to professional bodies providing the dates of compulsory workshops. Applications for recognition as a professional body will only be sent to professional bodies that have attended the compulsory workshop.
