The Associations are stakeholders of SEIFSA and have representation on the SEIFSA Council, which is the Chamber or forum where the representatives of each one of the 18 federated Associations meet, discuss, and agree on different matters affecting the metals and engineering industries.

Each Association is unique to their specific sector and the Associations promote ethical business practices and offer an ideal platform for its members to network with relevant industry players, receive up-to-date information on the latest industry news, promote the interests of members, discuss issues such as government legislation, labour laws, lobbying on issues that affect their members and general matters affecting the steel and engineering industries within South Africa, as well as the various sectors. Through the Association meetings, members receive an update on the latest industry news
