A successful BEE verification is the key to business success. With the emphasis that is now placed on having a good BEE status the question has changed from “do I need a BEE status” to “what level is required or will my clients accept this”. This fundamental mindset shift from “do I” to “how good” has now virtually guaranteed that a good level of compliance directly impacts on the amount of business a company is awarded.
On the other hand ensuring that your company is successful during it’s BEE verification can be stressful and time consuming. Dedicated staff members should be involved heavily in this process. They need a good understanding of B-BBEE and of the verification process. In-particular considering how often interpretations within the legislation change, how different agencies have vastly differing interpretations and that when errors are made, ensuring that the correct procedures are followed.
