SASFA is a division of the Southern African Institute of Steel Construction (SAISC)
and as such is not a separate legal entity. However, it is entitled to have its
own identity, rules, and programmes.
Members of SASFA should ensure that the impression is not created that SASFA is
a separate legal entity. Wherever SASFA’s name is used in a formal sense, the words
‘a division of the Southern African Institute of Steel Construction’ will be added
to the name.
Since SASFA is not a separate legal entity, it is not possible to be a member of
SASFA only. Membership is, in the first place, membership of the SAISC, which entitles
members to all the privileges and benefits associated with such membership. However,
only members of the Institute who are registered in one of the categories of membership
listed below (each of which is specific to SASFA) and who have been accepted by
the SASFA Steering Committee and approved by the SAISC Board will be members of
SASFA. Consequently, the rules relating to membership of the SAISC, such as termination
of membership for failing to pay subscriptions, will ipso facto apply to members
