In light of the post of the 2 March 2017 on sheqafrica.com, should one still proceed with registration?
I have been working in the Civil Engineering consulting industry since 1986 as a civil engineering technician (± 25 years), and as an H&S consultant / practitioner in the Civil Engineering / Construction industry for the past 7 years, I have in the last 6 months been “disqualified” from tenders, RFQ’s due to not having registered as a Pr. CHSA with the SACPCMP)
Reasons for not registering are attributed to the following:
I am currently in my final year completing my NDSMN at UNISA, the current state of affairs regarding registration is extremely messy to say the least, any thoughts on when there might be some clarity / finality regarding registrations.
Thank you sheqafrica for your excellent platform, keeping us informed and up to date.

Abe, we do not support the current process, but until such time as it is changed (if ever), it is a purely commercial decision. Many consulting companies have suffered the same fate as you. Should you continue with registration and the process is altered. stopped, halted, then refund requests will be on top of the menu. If you do not register and the status quo remains, well, then you have seen what happened.
Thank you Sheqafrica, great site keep up the excellent contributions/work in the OH&S profession, much appreciated.
