Cement & Concrete SA (CCSA) is the consolidated body taking the lead on all matters relating to cement and concrete in South Africa.

The single non-profit entity, CCSA, was established in March 2021 through the consolidation of The Concrete Institute (TCI), Concrete Society of Southern Africa (CSSA), and the Association of Cementitious Material Producers (ACMP).

We will create long-term shared value and industry growth in South Africa through driving collaboration, skills development, innovation, and the highest standards in sustainable cement and concrete materials and products.

CCSA is mandated to promote and support the industry, drive growth and deliver shared value through a unified platform for cement and concrete.

These services include courses presented by the School of Concrete Technology, access to the Information Centre, attendance at technical events and webinars, publications, and hyperlinked listings on various electronic sources.
