Organisation members 

The IRC is an association not for gain in South Africa and is funded by membership subscriptions from Corporate and Organisation members. It was founded in 2010 by founding organisations ASISA, IoDSA, JSE and SAICA. Today, there are 17 Organisation members (the main professional and regulatory bodies with an interest in governance and reporting in South Africa). Organisation members are offered many of the benefits above with the prime advantage of sharing the IRC’s technical publications and technical developments with their own members.
