In September 2018, the Department of Mineral Resources issued the Broad-Based Socio-Economic Empowerment Charter for the Mining Industry (Mining Charter #3) which were subsequently followed by its guidelines promulgated in December 2018. Both the charter and its guidelines affirms the SABS as an agency to carry out local content verifications.
We do NOT only make you comply with Mining Charter #3, RATHER we make you a
valuable contributor to the South African Incorporated (SA Inc.)……………..WITH PRIDE.
Mining houses are obligated to spend at least 70% of their procurement on South African manufactured goods. In terms of the definitions of the charter, South African manufactured goods refers to goods with a minimum of 60% local content during the assembly of manufacturing of the product in South Africa Do you have the knowledge and competencies in-house to prepare and complete all
documentation? Will this be uditable and satisfy the SABS’s LC Verification requirements? We are your “one stop shop” to provide a solution to package and prepare your rganization for any verification.
Most suppliers of mining products, equipment and services are NOT as informed when it comes to the Designated Sector requirements as legislated by the South African government. This makes reporting a “nightmare” for both supplier and the procuring mine. We bring a combined 13 years’ experience of Designated Sector reporting gained in the Public Sector space to your door. Our expertise include having worked closely with the Department of Trade and Industry, National Treasury and the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) It may look minor at face value, but may have serious ramifications in the future. What you do about it now, and how you do it, may save your company and strengthen relationships.
