Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Act, 2003 (Act No. 53 of 2003)

Codes of Good Practice on Black Economic Empowerment

Tourism Sector Charter

1. Preamble


(1.1) We, the stakeholders of the Tourism Sector, take this opportunity to state our awareness of the need to align the Tourism BEE Charter with the dti's Codes of Good practice on B-BBEE and advance sector initiatives to empower black South Africans, and, in so doing, to make the sector more accessible, more relevant and more beneficial to all South Africans.


(1.2) The Tourism Sector Codes express the commitment of all stakeholders in the Tourism Sector to the empowerment and transformation of the sector and its commitment to working collectively to ensure that the opportunities and benefits of the Tourism Sector are extended to black South Africans as well. We have submitted to the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) to gazette the tourism BEE Charter as a Final Sector Code in terms of the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Act No 53 of 2003. We have ensured that the Tourism BEE Charter fulfills the requirements set out under Section 9, for gazetting as a Sector Code, namely that the Charter:
(a) Has no deviations from Codes definitions and principles, and
(b) Is sufficiently comparable to the codes in the order of elements, targets and weightings.
