11. Verification of Construction Enterprises


11.1 The B-BBEE verification of Construction Sector enterprises shall be performed by B-BBEE verification professionals or rating agencies accredited by SANAS or when applicable a B-BBEE Verification Professional Regulator appointed by the Minister of Trade and Industry for the accreditation of verification agencies or the authorisation of B-BBEE verification professionals.


11.2 In view of the fact that EMEs and QSEs are expected to be verified for compliance with the 40% Skills Development element in order to maintain their levels as provided for under paragraph 3.6.3 above, small black-owned emerging entities have access to B-BBEE verification agencies that will limit their fee for this service at a nominal value. The CSCC, in consultation with and as approved by the dti will post such nominal fees on the website. Verification Agencies that are prepared to perform this service, will post their contact details on the Construction Sector Charter Council website for ease of reference. In addition, Large Construction Enterprises will be encouraged to fund this nominal fee for small businesses as part of their Supplier Development programmes. This has already been included in the Supplier Development Contribution clause 10.10.5.


11.3 Certificates issued for Start-Up Enterprises must clearly, on the face thereof, indicate the date of issue and the enterprise’s classification as a ‘Start-Up Enterprise’
