Welcome to the section of the Fieldbus Foundation website that is dedicated to the news, activities and events within the Southern African region.

The Fieldbus Foundation Southern Africa Marketing Committee (FFSAMC) was formally launched in 2007, and is committed to promoting an increased awareness and adoption of Foundation fieldbus technology throughout the Southern African region through promotional activities and a range of end user focused activities including training, technical support, trade show participation and end user seminars.

The FFSAMC is fully supported by the Fieldbus Foundation EMEA Steering Committee which implements the directives and strategies of the Fieldbus Foundation EMEA Executive Advisory Council (EAC) for the region

In January 2015, IDX Academy based in Fourways, Johannesburg, passed the rigorous certification process required to be a site that offers fieldbus training courses certified under the Foundation Fieldbus Certified Training Programme (FCTP). IDX Academy is the first site for certified Foundation Fieldbus training on the African continent.
