Forwarding and Clearing Sub-Sector Code for B-BBEE

3. Indicators of Empowerment (to achieve this vision)

3.1 Ownership

3.1.2 Guiding Principles This principle is linked to the long-term strategy of growing the domestic F&C Industry so as to ensure that B-BBEE does not become a zero-sum game. Ownership is broken down into foreign ownership and South African ownership. The ownership target set is specifically aimed at the South African F&C Industry. With regard to foreign ownership, foreign companies, with local representation, will implement B-BBEE strategies, according to the guidelines provided by the F&C Sub-Sector Code. They will be encouraged to sell equity in their local operations. However, foreign companies that are unable to sell equity in their local operations should consider using the Equity Equivalent guidelines provided in the Code 100 of the B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice and set off increased achievements in this regard against the ownership requirement.
