Before you complete your online membership application, please, read the following:

1. I understand that Nutrition Society of South Africa (NSSA) membership is open to individuals who support the advancement of the scientific study of nutrition.

2. I understand that the NSSA is a scientific organisation and membership will not qualify me to practice as a registered Nutritionist. Registration of Nutritionists is governed by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA; Board for Dietetics and Nutrition). Should I wish to be considered for registration as a Nutritionist, then I will have to apply to the HPCSA, which will assess my qualification against the requirements and minimum competencies for a Nutritionist. I can obtain the relevant information from their website www.hpcsa.co.za.

3. I understand that being a member of the NSSA does not give me the right to use the official logo of the NSSA in any way.
