For many South African companies, Broad-Based Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) up until now may have been about tallying numbers on a scorecard to achieve compliance. However this will no longer be enough, and amendments to the B-BBEE measurement codes published on 11 October 2013 by the Department of Trade and Industry and effective from 1 May 2015, should give pause for thought to South African businesses who will have to consider the imperative for enterprise and supplier development too.   Read More...
