    Why should I have to buy a set of regulations that define what is legislated by a government or municipality. That is bs. I will then build what I want according to acceptable standards. It amounts to extortion. By a Qualified Project Manager…

  10. Michael how do you as an individual decide on “acceptable standards”? The SABS spends a lot of time and money testing and approving all products available in SA so that the general public does not get conned and that the materials they use in the construction of their homes will do the job that it is intended to do. The ISO is an accepted mechanism internationally that does the same as the SABS but at an international level. So I ask again does your personal judgement override the work that these organisations do?
