WorldSkills is a global competition organisation that raises the profile of skilled individuals worldwide. This organisation also demonstrates how skills are essential in achieving economic growth. Their competitions are a leading platform for international benchmarking in education. Festo, a leading supplier of Industrial Automation and technical education, has been a global industry partner of WorldSkills for over 30 years. They have been providing the competition organisation with state-of-the-art learning systems. The collaboration started in 1991 with a request for Festo to design and equip a new competition discipline titled Mechatronics. It has since expanded to many other disciplines, including Industrial Mechanics, Water Technology, Industrial Control, Renewable Energy and Industry 4.0.

Established in 1945 in terms of the Standards Act, (Act No.  24 of 1945). The South African Bureau of Standards became one of the founder members of the International Organisation for Standardization (ISO) in 1947. SABS has always been actively involved in the development of international standards through the technical committees we represent. Active membership of the IEC (International Electrical Commission) has eventually led to the adoption of selected IEC Standards applicable to electro-technical products, many of which were later declared compulsory. The SABS has seen South Africa through many transitions with the application of standard protocols and pioneered many standards in support of the development of the South African Industry.
