South Africa’s quality is of international standard, here’s why:

Not only does Access to Africa introduce its customers to high selling products at great prices, we also make sure that our suppliers abide by the strict quality control standardisation body SABS. That way we make sure that we introduce the international market to the best South African products. All our products are SABS approved, but what does that mean?

The South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) is a South African statutory body that was established in terms of the Standards Act, 1945 (Act No. 24 of 1945) as the national institution for the promotion and maintenance of standardisation and quality in connection with commodities and the rendering of services.

As the national standardisation authority, the SABS is responsible for maintaining South Africa’s database of more than 6,500 national standards, as well as developing new standards and revising, amending or withdrawing existing standards as required.

Internationally, SABS experts represent South Africa’s interests in the development of international standards, through their engagement with bodies such as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)

South Africa has a long and proud history of involvement with these bodies and was a founder member of ISO. On a regional level, the SABS currently holds the Secretariat for SADCSTAN, the standardisation body for the Southern African Development Community of 14 nations.
