Moore Stephens Cape Town BEE Services would like to wish you all the best for 2017 and we believe that this is the year to build and improve on the relationships formed.
Regarding changes which may have taken place in the last quarter of 2016, leading into 2017:
No real major changes have occurred in the last quarter of 2016 leading into 2017 within the BEE sphere. There was speculation that we were going to see some of the amended draft sector codes being gazetted and for the sectors which had not been gazetted, to be repealed. However, none of this has happened. The way we ended 2016, is the way we began 2017. In summary as follows:
Amended Generic and QSE Codes of Good Practice - In Effect
Amended Tourism Sector Code - In Effect
MAC Sector Code - In Effect
Amended ICT Sector Code - In Effect
Amended Transport Sector Code - In Draft Format (Old Sector Code still in effect)
Amended Construction Sector Code - In Draft Format (Amended Codes of Good practice applied)
Amended Agriculture Sector Code - In Draft Format (Old Sector Code still in effect)
Amended Financial Services Sector Code - In Draft Format (Old Sector Code still in effect)
Amended Property Sector Code - In Draft Format (Old Sector Code still in effect)
It is now official that IRBA Auditors are no longer able to issue compliance and accredited BEE certificates. Only SANAS Accredited BEE Verification Agencies may issue compliant and accredited BEE certificates.
