BEE: New verification manual welcomed

2008-07-28 00:00

The Association of BEE Verification Agencies has welcomed the announcement by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) that the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) Verification Manual has been gazetted.

The manual is for purposes of accreditation and verification of BBBEE-related reporting by the South African National Accreditation System and Black Economic Empowerment Verification Agencies.

The association said the manual will go a long way to ensure minimum norms, ethical conduct, consistency and transparency in the verification process.

“This will of course benefit businesses that are eager to ensure that their BBBEE status is up to date and in line with the … codes of good practice.”

It is expected that the manual will make a substantial contribution in changing the way the business of BBBEE verification is done, instilling a sense of accountability.

The manual can be obtained from the department’s head office in Tshwane and is also accessible via the DTI website at
