While SANS 10400 is the foundation for all building work, there are many other national standards that are pivotal for the construction industry. For instance, if you are building a timber frame home, you will need to access SANS 10082. Anyone assembling timber roof trusses must follow the guidelines provided in SANS 2001, Part CT2.
