Caution! Fake RTMS auditor rips off transporter

Caution! Fake RTMS auditor rips off transporter

We have just been made aware of an unassuming transport operator, who paid a R16 250 "deposit" for a RTMS audit in the false belief that he was dealing with legitimate auditors.

It appeared that they convinced the transporter that they would conduct an "audit" which was approved by SANAS. This was entirely untrue.

You will remember that a short while ago some other companies reported certain individuals posing as RTMS auditors offering "free RTMS certificates" for 2 years. 

In the other instance, it was reported that that the individual convinced the company that it was illegal to use one audit company for longer than 3 years stating that "SANAS have approved" their company.

All such claims by these individuals are completely untrue. As the old saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Please note that  JC Auditors are the only SANAS-accredited RTMS certification body in South Africa.  If you would like to verify the authenticity of a RTMS certificate, please send an e-mail request to This email address is being protected from spambots.

SANAS-accredited RTMS bodies must provide a copy of their accreditation certificate. This is the essential requirement in order for bodies to conduct RTMS audits. See example of such a certificate below. Note that the certificate must specifically state that the field of certification is  "SANS 1395-1 (schedule of accreditation).

Please pass this message to all your stakeholders/partners so that we  prevent these unscrupulous individuals from causing any further damage in the transport community.
