What is a BEE Certificate

A BEE Certificate is the end product of the B-BBEE verification process listing all critical information such as name, address and registration details of the company assessed, as well as the category, sector code, element scores and points as per the company’s BEE scorecard, and the issue date of the certificate. A BEE certificate is valid for 1 year from date of issue, and can be re-evaluated at any time during that year to potentially achieve a better score. Certificates are only valid when issued by a SANAS accredited or IRBA approved provider.

Due to the BEE certificate being independent and credible, it is increasingly used to grow South African companies by using it to apply for tenders, provide to clients applying preferential procurement, registering for grants and loans, applying for licences and so forth.
