About us

South Africa Branch

The Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (ICS) in South Africa had its beginning in 1965, under the name of The Institute of South African Shipbrokers (ISAS). Members that had passed the London exams were then accorded membership of ISAS, and the records were kept in Cape Town.

ISAS' international relationship with ICS ended in 1971 as a consequence on sanctions protesting South African aprtheid laws, but was welcomed back into the fold in 1993.

The South Africa Branch of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers was then formed in 1996. The President of ISAS, Sean Miongue, became Chairman of ICS South Africa Branch, and the Durban office was set up by Bambi Lewin.

The ICS SA Branch is not incorporated as a company nor a non-profit organization in South Africa, and is run by the following agreements with London:

  • Royal Charter and Bye Laws
  • Branch Rules
  • International Teaching Centre - Memorandum of Agreement
