At the heart of everything we do in South Africa is ICE-SA, the volunteer ICE local association (formerly known as the Joint Civils Division).

ICE-SA invites ICE members to meet regularly to exchange knowledge and ideas, visit interesting engineering sites and raise the profile of ICE and civil engineering within the area. The ICE-SA website is full of useful resources and information for civil engineers working in South Africa.

ICE also has an Agreement of Cooperation with the South African Institution of Civil Engineers (SAICE). This enables members of either organisation to attend meetings, conferences and use library facilities at members' rates.

There is a Mutual Exemption Agreement between ICE, Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA) & South African Institution of Civil Engineers (SAICE), which provides a streamlined route to emmbership for Chartered Civil Engineers and PEng registrants /SAICE members.
