Encouraging report on Sector Charter Councils Forum Workshop 2 July 2013
18 July, 2013
The DTI convened the Sector Charter Councils Forum Workshop 2 July 2013, to discuss both the BBBEE Amendment Bill and the New Codes issued by the DTI. The purpose of the meeting was to try to gain consensus among the various sectors which already have Charters, on the alignment of Sector Codes with the new legislation and codes. There were over 500 submissions received on the Bill and new codes and there was a final stakeholder engagement in February of this year, to assess where Govt was prepared to concede on some issues and where they would not deviate from what was in the Bill or new codes. Notwithstanding this there was still widespread confusion among stakeholders and Councils, so the DTI had published Guidelines (attached herewith) and convened Tuesday's meeting to discuss them further. read more
