​​Understanding the Mark​

Since September 2007, the SABS has been converting all existing Mark logos toward a single product certification Mark as shown below:​

SABS Mark of Approval

The SABS Mark gives the assurance to the purchaser that the product meets the following:
  • Safety (complies with all statutory requirements)
  • Quality / fitness for purpose (meets an appropriate standard)
  • Redress (SABS intervention on behalf of customers)
Old marks will be phased out as soon as feasible, after taking into account the cost of new tooling for the manufacturer.
Purchasers wishing to determine the specifications for which a mark is awarded should visit the Certification Search page. 
Manufacturers wishing to convert should contact the relevant SABS auditor who will be able to supply the relevant high-resolution graphics.​
