SACPCMP Forensic Investigation


ACHASM would like to notify its members that the SACPCMP has launched a forensic investigation into alleged corrupt and unethical activities by employees and external assessors.  The investigation will be carried out by a reputable independent firm and has already been set in motion.  It must also be noted that the investigation is not limited to the health & safety division of the SACPCMP but involves the wider project and construction manager sector as well.
