The BEE, or Black Economic Empowerment, programme was designed to counteract years of systemic racism in South Africa. It is an affirmative action programme that came about after Apartheid ended to address the problems created by apartheid. Since its inception, it was then amended to be broad and included more B-BBEE elements; now it’s referred to Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment programme (B-BBEE).
All companies, public entities and State-Owned Entities should support B-BBEE strategy in order to eradicate past imbalance and contribute positive within the country, through B-BBEE implementation policy. Assurance Verification Agency is SANAS accredited to issue B-BBEE certificates and offer quality service with experienced employees.
