Corporate Governance

Corporate governance embodies processes and systems by which public entities are directed, controlled and held to account. In addition to legislative requirements based on the Architectural Professions Act, corporate governance concerning public entities is applied and run in tandem with the principles contained in the King Report on Corporate Governance. Governance is the system by which SACAP is controlled and directed through sustainability as a citizen creating value in the architectural environment.
This Annual Report focuses on qualitative and quantitative activities arising in 2019/20 that are material to SACAP's business operations and strategic objectives. Materiality was determined through extensive consultation with stakeholders, and by taking into consideration, SACAP's core objectives and how its value chain operate. SACAP is mandated within six months from the close of each financial year, provide the CBE with a report regarding its activities during that financial year.

Executive Authority

The Minister of the Department of Public Works is responsible for the appointment of SACAP Council members. The Council is responsible for the regulation of the profession. The CBE is responsible to ensure that there is uniform application of norms and guidelines set by Councils and to ensure consistency on the application of policy within the built environment.

Composition of the Council

The Council is appointed in terms of Section 3 of the Act, and it comprises of seven registered persons, excluding candidates, of which at least four must actively practice in the architectural profession, two professionals in the service of the State nominated by any sphere of government, of whom at least one must be nominated by the department; and two members of the public nominated through a public participation process.

The Role of the Council

Council sets the overall strategic direction for the organization.

Council Charter and Committee Functioning Guidelines

The purpose of a Council Charter is to provide an overview of the SACAP Council's composition, role, responsibilities, meeting procedures, remuneration, and other related matters. In addition, Council has Committee functioning guidelines which provide an overview of the composition of Committees, role, meeting procedures and other related requirements. Furthermore, Council has developed a Code of Conduct, whose purpose is to provide a framework to regulate the behavior of members of Council and other persons appointed to SACAP Committees by the Council in a way which supports SACAP, its Vision, Mission and Objectives.
Each Committee has approved terms of reference and a requirement to submit quarterly reports to Council about the activities of the Committee.

The Role of Committees of Council

The Committees of Council are established in terms of Section 17 of the Architectural Profession Act. The Committee of Council acts on a mandate as delegated by Council. The extent of the delegated authority by Council to the Committee is to consider, review, assess, advise and recommend to Council on matters pertaining to its area of responsibility of the Committee.

The Registrar

The Registrar is appointed by Council in terms of section 8 (1) of the Act and acts on a delegated authority by Council. The Registrar is accountable to Council. The Registrar is responsible for day-to-day administration of SACAP in line with approved policies and procedures. The Registrar ensures effective implementation of Council resolutions. The Registrar is responsible to ensure that the Council strategy is implemented.

Our History

Professional Architects were regulated under the Architects Act 35 of 1979. This Act established the South African Council for Architects (SACA). SACA commenced operations on or around 1 March 1971. The Architects Act 35 of 1979 remained in force of a period of almost 30 years. The Architects Act 35 of 1979 regulated Professional Architects only.

The Architects Act 35 of 1979 was repealed and replaced by the Architectural Profession Act 44 of 2000. The Architectural Profession Act was published on 1 December 2000 and it came into operation on 26 January 2001. On 12 September 2001, the South African Council for Architects was renamed the South African Council for the Architectural Profession.
The Architectural Profession Act 44 of 2000 regulates Professional Architects, Professional Senior Architectural Technologists, Professional Architectural Technologists and Professional Architectural Draughtspersons
