The South African Statistical Association is an open association and not a professional body, and thus does not satisfy the requirements for work permits and do not issue membership certificates. Membership is open to any person with no pre-requisitions.
Through the Institute of Certified and Chartered Statisticians of South Africa (ICCSSA), professional accreditation is provided for SASA members. Applications can be done at www.iccssa.co.za. One can also register as a professional scientist through SACNASP. More information regarding SACNASP.
