75 Years of dedication to Local Industry! Putting South African Industry first should be our main priority in these challenges we currently experience. Our economy cannot achieve our goals if we import most of the products we use. A thriving manufacturing industry creates jobs and business opportunities, enables skills development and improves our competitiveness in global markets. Procuring locally manufactured goods has obvious benefits for national competitiveness and economic growth. Therefore, the Local Production and Content initiative mandates minimum local content requirements for state tenders in designated sectors. For public procurement, South African National Standard (SANS) 1286:2017 defines local content as “that portion of the tender price that is not included in the imported content, provided that local manufacturing takes place and is calculated following the local content formula”. Standard available FREE at www.store.sabs.co.za When companies irrespective of the size ask how SABS can improve the quality of their products and services and consistently meet their customers’ expectations, then we confidently can say that Standards are the answer. Addressing various aspects of quality management there’s the well known SANS/ISO 9000 family. The Standards have continuously been updated to suit changing manufacturing environments. At SABS we say: “Start your Success, start with GET STANDARD SANS/ISO 9001”. Quality DOES count! ONLINE
