SAFA activities

The primary aim of all SAFA activities is to promote the quality of the built environment. At the national level, SAFA endeavours to influence legislation by presenting SAFA opinion in the form of statements and conducting discussions with politicians and various public authorities. Together with other organizations in the building sector, SAFA has defined the scope of work for architectural design. To ensure the interests of both clients and architects, SAFA monitors and provides information about architectural fees. It also supervises professional standards and ethics among its members.
