SASS Accreditation

SASS ( South African Scoring System) is the widely used bioassessment method based on aquatic macroinvertebrates. It forms the backbone of the River Health Programme, the nation biomonitoring programme in South Africa.

Helen Dallas is the Western Cape Provincial Auditor for the River Health Programme.  She has been running SASS accreditation days for practitioners in the Western Cape since 2009.


The next SASS accreditation is scheduled after the upcoming course in October 2017.

Please email Helen (helen@frcsa.org.za) if you are interested in participating.
