The ACHEMA world forum and leading show happens every 3 years and the next in-person event has been pushed back to April 2022.



The following was received from ECSA:

It has come to the attention of the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) that certain providers have been impersonating the ECSA brand on their non-validated activity material in order to extort money from unsuspecting ECSA registered persons.

To avoid being misled by these unscrupulous providers, please note the following:

• All activities validated for the ECSA CPD program are listed on the ECSA’s website

• The validation number of the CPD activity can be obtained from the activity provider or from the marketing material of the activity

• The validity of the activity can be verified by visiting following link: https://engineeringcouncilsa.microsoftcrmportals.com/cpd-activities/ and using the validation number in the search field.

• If no information is returned; the activity is not validated and therefore cannot be recorded under Category 1: Development Activities.

ECSA therefore requests registered persons to first confirm the validity of the CPD activity for Category 1: Developmental Activities before making payment to any activity provider.

If you require any further assistance or suspect any foul play, please call us on 0861 225 555, send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
