BREAKING NEWS – Professional Body Status

The South African Qualifications Authority (“SAQA”) was established in terms of the National Qualifications Framework (“NQF”) Act 67 of 2008 and in terms of this legislation was charged with forming a customary method for the recognition process of Professional Bodies.

It now gives us great pleasure to announce that the SAQA Board has approved the recognition of ILASA as a Professional Body, for the purposes of the NQF Act.

SAQA has also approved the registration of the following professional designation:

  • Professional Loss Adjuster;

This has given rise to ILASA being awarded Professional Body Status for the Loss Adjusting industry and simultaneous recognition of our professional designation.

In time, we will strive to have leaders, of all related industry players, to both endorse and recognize our professional status. It now falls on your National Committee to formally confer these designations on our qualified members.

You will be kept apprised of developments.
