BEE has been on the agenda of government
since 1994. The detail for implementation is
to be found in Codes of good Practice which
were gazetted in February 2007. The aim of
BEE has always been to redress the economic
exclusion of the majority of South Africans,
by doing that it was believed that a more
evenly shared & stronger economy would be
created and this would lead to job creation.

came up with a law that states that all business
should have a BBBEE certificate. Therefore when
applying for government tenders and Data Base

requirements in doing business in South Africa. This

ownership of enterprise by black people
“Black people is defined as Africans, Colored's
and Indians who are South African Citizens.
The ownership Element is about sharing the
economic fruits of the country with Black

enterprises buy goods & services from
suppliers with strong BBBEE procurement
The BEE Act does not place a legal onus on all
