The forum is currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the regulations governing gatherings of people and restrictions on potential meeting venues. 


The Sappi Saiccor Coastal Advisory Forum is a platform through which the community, authorities, industry and local environmental groups are able to engage on issues regarding the Sappi Saiccor coastal waters discharge pipeline.

The forum ensures that regular reporting to the stakeholders provides an opportunity for monitoring of the outfall for compliance with the licence or permit, and that adverse impacts and pollution to the receiving environment are avoided and/or minimised within acceptable timeframes to acceptable standards. The forum also provides a platform to inform the authorities of concerns that may be raised during the licence period, and for active positive engagement around the concerns.

The Agenda, minutes and any important notices relevant to the forum and the stakeholders may be accessed here.
