The compliance manual between ACSSA and the MIB is implemented within three months after subscription
(as made possible by the MIB). Some data will be added to the manual depending on availability and cost.
Confidentiality: We treat our customers' information in accordance
with the Information Act, Act 2 of 2000.
Taking Care: We protect our customers' information
and accept responsibility when it is placed in our hands.
You should make use of services provided by ACSSA to ensure the continuous trade and business of a MIB,
since the MIB must comply with the relevant legislation, standards and code of practice.
The National Regulator audits MIB's on a frequency of about once every eighteen months.
If issues of concern are found by the National Regulator and not resolved by the MIB's,
the National Regulator will terminate the sale of commodities by means of deleting and de-linking
model NaTIS numbers, and could also deregister the MIB at the NDoT (National Department of Transport).
ACSSA was established was due to the lack of expertise in homologation and other legislation
enforced in South Africa. Even though South Africa has a complex homologation system, MIB's often
assign the task of homologation and legislation to an employee, as secondary task in their job description.
Not complying with all relevant standards and legislation can cause a company to loose model registration
numbers (model NaTIS), which are required by NaTIS to register vehicles. If vehicles can not be registered,
no sales will be achieved, since Financial Institutions (Banks) insist that vehicles and companies comply
with relevant requirements.
