   SAQA INVITES COMMENT ON EAPASA'S APPLICATION FOR PROFESSIONAL BODY STATUS, NO LATER THAN 2 JUNE 2019

The qualification standard for Environmental Assessment Practice was re-registered by the Board of the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) on 25 October 2018, for a further five years. This re-registration made it possible for EAPASA to submit its application to SAQA, in December 2018, for recognition as a professional body. SAQA conducted a site visit to the EAPASA offices in Centurion in February 2019, and have concluded in their evaluation report that EAPASA meets all the criteria for recognising a professional body.

SAQA now invites comment from interested parties on EAPASA's application, no later than 30 days after publication of the Government Gazette (Regulation 629, Gazette Number 42431 of 3 May 2019). Professional body status will allow EAPASA to confer the professional designation of Environmental Assessment Practitioner (EAP) on members registered under the requirements of the Section 24H Registration Authority Regulations of the NEMA.

EAPASA would be grateful for letters of support for its application for professional body status, to be sent to 'The Director: Registration and Recognition, SAQA', emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
