Abstract

Twelve National Standards Bodies (NSB) were set up in 1998 as part of the larger establishment and full operationalisation of the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) - a statutory body responsible for the registration and quality assurance of all standards and qualifications aligned to the National Qualifications Framework (NQF). This chapter provides a case study of six of these NSB's.
