SABS and SANS Accreditation | Certifications

 

Quality remains one of the key pillars of continuous improvement. At Cobra, our people are continually coached to ensure they adhere to our quality principles and observe correct procedures.
 
Our quality management systems at our manufacturing facilities in Krugersdorp and Springs are

SABS ISO 9001 certified.

Our taps and mixers are produced and tested to meet in-house standards. Where there is a South African standard in place, such as the South Africa National Standard (SANS) by the South Africa Bureau of Standards (SABS), our products are tested and certified to ensure they conform.

Selected Cobra products are also Joint Acceptance Scheme for Water Installation Components (Jaswic) approved and listed, which means they are accepted for use by municipal bodies.
