Across all BEE Scorecards, there are Priority Elements with which you MUST comply at a minimum of 40%.
The Priority Elements are:
- Skills Development
- Preferential Procurement and Enterprise and Supplier Development (ESD)
If you are a QSE (turnover between R10million – R50million) and you HAVE Ownership (51% or more) then you can be verified for a BEE certificate and you only have to comply with ONE of the other Priority Elements (Skills Development or Preferential Procurement and ESD).
