The history of the South African loading code (The general procedures and loadings to be adopted in the design of buildings: SABS 0160: 1989) started in 1983 when a working group was established by the Structural Division of SAICE to make recommendations on appropriate policy for the formulation of limit-states requirements in South African structural codes. The working group agreed at an early stage that, from the point of view of logic, consistency and convenience, the partial load factors and load combinations applicable to all materials in building structures should be defined in a revised South African loading code.
