Macpherson, Mr DW to ask the Minister of Trade and Industry

With reference to the ongoing debate on the expropriation of land without compensation and the nationalisation of the SA Reserve Bank (SARB), (a) on what number of occasions have representatives from his department met with their American counterparts to unpack the unfolding debate on both matters, (b) what has the feedback been from each meeting and (c) what effect has he found that the expropriation of land without compensation and the nationalisation of the SARB had with respect to South Africa’s continued participation in the African Growth and Opportunity Act, 2000?

Reply:

a) The dti officials have met with the US Embassy no less than three times between June and August 2018. All these discussions were aimed at exchanging views and sharing information on bilateral trade and investment issues between South Africa and the US. Discussion on the ongoing debate on land expropriation arose in this context, and was not more prominent than other issues under discussion. The nationalisation of the SA Reserve Bank (SARB) was never raised in the discussions between the dti and the US Embassy.

b) The discussions have been mostly to discuss recent developments such as the US Section 232 tariffs on steel and aluminium imports into the US and their impact on South Africa’s AGOA benefits. In the few instances where the US raised the land issue, the dti provided an update and explained the transparent and responsible approach that will be followed in decision making. The Embassy emphasised that the US government would not be taking sides but had an interest in seeing a legal and constitutional resolution of the issue.

c) In all the meetings with US Embassy, no links were made on land expropriation without compensation and AGOA. The US State Department, as indicated in its statement, recognises the complexities of the land reform programme and its intention to ensure equitable distribution of land in South Africa. There is also recognition that South Africa’s land reform programme will be undertaken through a Constitutional process that is inclusive and transparent and will be carried out in accordance with the laws of the country. The World Bank has also published a study on “Overcoming the legacy of exclusion in South Africa” which states that a well- managed system of land distribution is essential to redressing the country’s economic inequality. The President’s statements on this issue have also assisted to communicate a clear message to all trade partners on the approach to land reform which aims to ensure that the land reform aims to boost the productive use of land to promote sustainable development. Furthermore, land reform will be undertaken taking due consideration of the need to promote food security and the implications for other sectors of the economy. There is also recognition of the ability of South Africa to handle complicated issues of national interest having managed to find a peaceful solution in resolving apartheid and in moving towards a democratic dispensation.

Profile picture: Singh, Mr N

Singh, Mr N to ask the Minister of Trade and Industry

Whether he has met with the Minister of Health and the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries to further discuss the socio-economic benefits of the commercialisation of hemp farming in the country; if not, on what date will this discussion take place; if so, what are the further relevant details?

Reply:

No, I have not met with either the Minister of Health or the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries to discuss the commercialisation of hemp.

However, the dti recognises the potential value to be derived from commercial value chains of Cannabis and related products. Thus it has undertaken research that seeks to understand, from an industrial policy perspective, the obstacles and opportunities for South Africa to become an active and innovative player in this growing market.

For the purposes of this research, opportunities and obstacles to develop industrial capacity and capability across the medicinal and related products will be considered. The focus will be to understand the obstacles and opportunities involved in: i) the cultivation of different strains of cannabis with specific THC and CBD composition; ii) the recovery of these compounds in the oil extraction process and iii) the beneficiation of THC and CBD through the production of medical products (using multiple delivery systems e.g. vapes, sprays, tablets, oils) as well as cosmetic and healthcare products such as balms, creams and tinctures.

The outcomes of this study will determine a way forward in terms of industrialising this sector in South Africa. Once the study has been concluded, I will engage the Ministers of Health and Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

Whether he has found that the provision of incentives, such as subsidies and tariff protection, which remove competitiveness in the industry, has an impact on the weak levels of economic growth in the country?

Reply:

It is an over-simplification to suggest that ‘subsidies and tariff protection remove competitiveness in the industry’.

(i) The dti’s incentives are carefully designed so as to improve the competitiveness of the beneficiary company and – over time – the competitiveness of industries.

For example, the Manufacturing Competitiveness Enhancement Programme (MCEP) was designed to assist firms which, after the Global Financial Crisis, were facing declining demand in traditional export markets and heightened import competition in South Africa’s domestic market. the dti offered matching grant funding to qualifying companies intending to invest in inter alia:

  • Buildings, machinery and equipment,
  • Improving company-level electricity and water generation and/or usage,
  • Undertaking specialised skills development, and
  • Product development to access new export markets.

By providing incentives to firms undertaking these types of investments, the dti is precisely targeting support to those activities which it is widely agreed, will raise firm-level competitiveness.

Over time, those firms that received the incentive should see an improvement in their competitiveness and may begin to win additional market share in the domestic or export market.

Those firms which have not made these kinds of investment may lose market share and through competition will eventually be forced to consider making competitiveness improving investments of their own, accept the loss of market share/profits, or find other markets for their products.

In this way, the dti will have directly supported the competiveness improvement of Company A through the provision of a subsidy. In addition, the dti’s support to Company A may – over time – induce substantial new investments from Companies B, C, D, and E which represent the industry as a whole, and thereby the competitiveness of an industry may improve.

(ii) South Africa has adopted a developmental approach to tariffs and has ensured that tariffs are used as a policy tool to support industrial development. In addition, South Africa adopts a case-by-case approach to tariffs based on the needs of each sector.

Consider the case of South Africa’s Automotive sector. It is widely held that the industry and local firms are highly competitive and are regular recipients of global quality and productivity awards. This happens even though South Africa maintains modest tariff protection for the Automotive sector. In these specific circumstances, the domestic Automotive sector firms compete with one another vigorously and are constantly looking at ways to improve their competitiveness even though they benefit from tariff protection.

There are however cases where tariff protection can remove competitiveness from industry. Consider a product such as soybeans which is used to produce poultry feed. Imposition of, or maintenance of a tariff on soybeans while South Africa’s agricultural sector is unable to grow enough soybeans to satisfy local demand will indeed reduce the competitiveness of the downstream industry (in this case poultry).

To avoid such a situation arising, Government assesses tariff protection in a rigorous process and considers a wide range of socio-economic factors across stakeholders before deciding to reduce, increase or impose tariff protection. In addition, Government may decide to provide a rebate of a particular tariff for a specific amount of time. Such a rebate is designed to avoid the competitiveness-reducing effect of a tariff in the soybean example while not forfeiting Government’s policy space to impose a tariff at a later date when circumstances may necessitate such an intervention.

(ii) the dti has found that the provision of carefully designed incentives (including tariff protection) has substantially contributed to South Africa’s economic growth.

For example, for every R1 in investment incentives provided by the dti, approximately R4 in investment is provided by private-sector investors. Thus, in the 2017/18 Financial Year, the dti’s incentives encouraged 849 firms to commit R35bn in private-sector investment.

Put differently, Government’s economic policy which includes the provision of incentives and tariffs, creates an enabling business environment which sustains 1.4 million formal and informal jobs in the Manufacturing sector.

Consequently, the support afforded by the dti to industry has supported economic growth and job retention especially in the period after the Global Financial Crisis.

(1)Whether the 10% tariff protection given to a certain company (ArcelorMittal) was one of the conditions that the price of steel must not be increased to the downstream industry; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, why has the specified company increased steel prices more than six times since it was given the tariff protection?

Reply:

No, the conditions of the 10% tariff increase on primary steel products produced by ArcelorMittal South Africa (AMSA) does not include conditions that the price of steel must not increase.

The conditions of the tariff adjustment are subject to a signed agreement between AMSA and government which includes a requirement for AMSA to abide by steel pricing principles and reciprocal commitments. These are the retention of jobs, maintaining industrial output and an independent settlement with the Competition Commission to invest R4.6 billion to raise competitiveness.

The agreement is based on an international basket price calculated using the domestic prices of steel in countries South Africa competes with in downstream steel intensive products. The basket is aimed at achieving a fair flat steel price that is priced appropriately to ensure that steel-dependent industries are competitive, while at the same time ensuring that the upstream steel mills remain sustainable. AMSA has complied with the basket price which changes as global prices increase or decrease in an environment where global market prices and input costs are volatile, but generally increasing. This process is monitored by the Department of Trade and Industry (thedti) and the International Trade and Administration Commission.(ITAC)

Excess steel capacity, unfair trade and increased steel imports are challenges, not only for the domestic economy, but globally. These problems are exacerbated by structural problems, weak economic recovery and depressed market demand. This has resulted in the increasing deployment of large-scale trade measures by a host of countries. In SA, the tariff increases are part of an integrated set of measures deployed by the SA government to respond to the challenges and support the steel industry as a whole.

In 2015 with the onset of the steel crisis, an interdepartmental task team was established to develop short to medium term measures to save the industry from the threat of closure, loss of capacity and job losses. The outcomes of the work to date are the following measures currently being implemented and monitored:

  1. Increase in the general rate of customs duty on primary steel products to 10% and safeguard measures for a period of 3 years on hot rolled coil and plate products,
  2. Tariff increases on a range of downstream products and the deployment of rebates where products are not manufactured or additional value added, before export,
  3. As set out above an agreement on a set of principles for flat steel pricing in SA,
  4. Local procurement by government to raise aggregate domestic demand by:
      • ‘undeeming’ of primary steel in designated products (requiring the use of locally manufactured primary steel)
      • designation of downstream steel intensive construction steel products and components,
  5. A settlement by the Competition Commission on a range of issues with AMSA,
  6. Establishment of a R1.5bn Steel Development Fund to support key downstream steel sectors/sub sectors, housed at the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC)
  7. Investment support through 12i tax incentives and incubation support for SME development.

Other measures are currently being considered and processed. These include the development of a short term negotiated electricity pricing framework for energy intensive users and a SARS/Customs reference price system for downstream products.

The inter-departmental steel task team is also engaged with developing medium to longer term interventions. Announcements on these will be made in due course.

The matter stemmed from grievance that was lodged by one senior manager against another

The matter was investigated and a recommendation was made that the senior manager be formally charged for misconduct. Whilst the initiator was in the process of drafting the charge sheet, the said senior manager was dismissed for unrelated misconduct. As a result thereof, such disciplinary hearing (relating to racism) did not take place.

(1)Whether, with reference to his undertaking during the joint sitting of the portfolio committees on Health, Trade and Industry and Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries on 28 March 2018, that his department would provide rehabilitation relief to businesses in the meat processing industry that are in distress, he and/or any senior official within his department have met with the specified businesses to understand their needs; if not, why not; if so, what were the findings; (2) whether his department conducted a full analysis of the impact the listeriosis outbreak had on the (a) meat processing industry and (b) rest of the value chain with respect to (i) job losses and (ii) revenue losses; if not, why not in each case; if so, what were the findings in each case; (3) (a) what is his policy position on the establishment of an independent food health and safety agency to align all areas of food handling and manufacturing regulation and (b) what action will he take to support the existence of such an agency?

Reply:

1. The lead Department for health and food safety is the Department of Health. Once the National Institute for Communicable Diseases had established the existence of listeriosis in South African meat processing plants the National Consumer Commission issued a recall notice under the provisions of the National Consumer Commission (NCC) and in the over-riding interests of public health.

thedti has an existing agro-processing incentive to which companies in the meat sector can apply. Each application will be dealt with on its merits including with respect to whether or not the company has raised food safety and health standards and commits to raising competitiveness. Senior officials from the Department of Trade and Industry have met with the South African Meat Processors Association (SAMPA) where this was explained.

2. thedti has conducted a preliminary economic analysis of the impact the listeriosis outbreak on the meat processing industry. This preliminary analysis will be followed up with a more comprehensive study to determine the wider economic and employment impact. Preliminary research to date suggests that the pork industry is the hardest hit. The demand for processed meat has dropped by 75% and the demand for pork cold cuts by 50%, with an estimated decline in profits of 40%. According to data from the Pork Producer’s Organization, two plants and one abattoir have closed down.

3. (a) thedti fully supports the formation of a Food Safety Agency and at the time of the outbreak immediately instructed the National Regulator for Compulsory Specifications (NRCS) to begin the process to develop the requisite regulation.

(b) The South African Constitution provides for food safety control as a concurrent function, across national government departments and at provincial and local government levels. The Departments of Agriculture, Health and Trade and Industry have existing concurrent functions to enhance food safety and consumer protection with the Department of Health as the lead department.

The fact that some part of the private sector allowed a highly deleterious lowering of standards in food safety, points to the need for a strengthened and consolidated approach by government. It is for this reason that the dti is working with the Department of Health, Department of Forestry and Fisheries other national departments and the National Regulatory for Compulsory Standards (NRCS) to establish a Food Safety Agency, with an attendant regulatory framework.

Government’s view is that the long term sustainability of the food sector and its ability to safeguard jobs, rests on an optimal health and safety standards regulatory framework, and enforcement by government.

Reply:

(1); (a), (b) (i)(ii); (aa) (bb), (aaa) (bbb),

The provisions for international official journeys for members of the executive and their spouses (alternatively one adult family member) are set out in Chapter 6, section 2 of the Ministerial Handbook. The provisions provide for an accompanying spouse or adult family member on international official journeys undertaken by a member of the executive.

No adult family member other than the Members spouse, Mrs Davies, accompanied the Member on official international duties.

In the past five financial years and the period from April 2018, the Member completed 66 official international work trips and was accompanied by his spouse on 8 occasions at an average cost of R53 037,50.

The purpose of the international work was to promote South African trade and investment interests. Details of the various international work undertaken by the executive member can be found in the dti Annual Reports, various reports to the Portfolio Committee on Trade and Industry, reports in the media and the dti website, amongst others.

The provisions in the Ministerial Handbook also provide for the personal staff in a Ministry to accompany the executive member on official travel abroad. During the period under review, staff from the personal office rarely accompanied the executive member on official travel abroad.

(2) There is no provision in the Handbook that requires the President to approve spousal travel.

Reply:

1. In accordance with the provisions of Statement 005 of the B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice, issued in terms of Section 9(1) of the B-BBEE Act, the B-BBEE Status level of Measured Entities are determined by Accredited Rating Agencies, through the issuing of Verification Certificates. Said Verification Certificates are valid for 12-months from date of issue, based on verified information requested by and supplied to the Accredited Rating Agency by the Measured Entity.

B-BBEE Status is determined through evaluation against the B-BBEE Scorecard contained in the Codes of Good Practice, measuring the participation in and recognition of black people in Ownership, Management Control, Skills Development, Enterprise and Supplier Development and Socio Economic Development.

2. The question on G4S BBBEE credentials was brought to the attention of the dti before the establishment of the Office of the BEE Commission. Following the establishment of this Office, all BBBEE potential fronting cases were handed over for further investigation. Therefore, further investigation into the G4S BBBEE credentials is being conducted by the office of the BEE Commissioner.

(a) Why has the National Lotteries Commission (NLC) failed to allocate funding towards animal welfare groups, specifically the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, for the past two financial years, (b) What are the detailed reasons and rationale behind this decision and (c) What plans does his department have in place to assist animal welfare organisations, as these groups rely solely on funding from the NLC and the public in order to provide free services and assistance in poor communities?

Reply:

a)  The National Lotteries Commission annually publishes priority areas to ensure more focused funding and maximum impact of the funds allocated. Priority areas are published yearly and available on the NLC’s website. There is continuous work done to ensure that beneficiaries are aware of priority areas and the NLC holds regular Indabas and Post Indaba Stakeholder Engagements with its beneficiaries to ensure that they are aware and actually contribute to the decisions of this nature.

b) Due to the limitation of funds and the increasing demand for assistance by non-profit originations, the NLC’s funding is aligned to the published priority areas to ensure more focused funding and maximum impact on funding allocated. The result is therefore that some funding areas get affected by this categorization.

c) The NLC held a meeting with NSPCA and fully explained the position relating to priority areas. A budget has been ring-fenced from the miscellaneous category of funding for the national body to apply on behalf of its branches.

The above information reflects close corporations that have both an active status (03) or a deregistration status (38 or 08). The legal personality of companies and close corporations are only withdrawn upon final deregistration and therefore those in a deregistration status may still be active and may at any time revert to an active status (cancelling the deregistration status).

Whether, with regard to businesses providing financial and social contributions to safe houses, children's homes and institutions that (a) also help white children and white disabled persons, (b) only help white children and white disabled persons at a given time, as, for example, only white indigent persons live in the area, (c) help white, black, brown and Indian children and the disabled and (d) help all children except white children and white disabled persons, are eligible for broad-based black economic empowerment points (BBBEE) in accordance with certain generic codes; if not, (i) why not and (ii) how is it justified in each case in terms of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996; if so, what are the relevant details in each case; (2) what are the full relevant details regarding the circumstances under which businesses which provide financial and social contributions to safe houses, children's homes and institutions (a) are eligible for maximum BBBEE points and (b) are not eligible for BBBEE points; (3) on what date did the generic codes for BBBEE points come into effect; (4) whether this regulation on the basis of restrictions on white children and white disabled persons has in any way contributed to the upliftment of previously disadvantaged persons; if so, what are the relevant details of valid scientific data in this regard; (5) whether the generic codes for BBBEE points create an environment where (a) the employment of and financial and social contributions to any white person disadvantages a business that wants to obtain BBBEE points and (b) businesses that are 100% black is earning the most BBBEE points without regard to demographic representation, in other words, can a business be 100% black but never 100% white; if so, what are the full relevant details in each case? [NW933E]

Reply:

1. B-BBEE promotes the achievement of the constitutional right to equality, within the historical context of race being used to control access to South Africa’s productive resources during apartheid. The increase of effective participation in the South African economy by the majority of South Africans previously denied such is envisioned, so as to promote the stability and prosperity of the economy in the future to the benefit of all South Africans, irrespective of race.

The examples higlighted of safe houses and children homes for B-BBEE purposes finds insight in the Socio Economic Development element which has a 75% black beneficiary base target. Qualifying Socio Economic Development Initiatives which has a maximum of 25% white beneficaries will enjoy 100% recognition under the Socio Economic Development Element. Black South African citizens as well as White people are thus recognised for the promotion of Socio Economic Development on the B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice. The intent of such donations are crucial as B-BBEE can not be a tick-box exercise.

2. Code Series 500 of the Amended B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice which is the Socio Economic Development pillar extensively documents the requirements for B-BBEE recognition. Eligibility is determined through measurement of:

(i) the specific objective with which the contribution was made; and

(ii) the black beneficiary percentage benefiting from the contribution.

3. . The B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice were gazetted, and thus became effective on 09 February 2007. The Codes were subsequently amended. The Amended B-BEE Codes of Good Practice came into effect on date of gazette thereof, being 11 October 2013. An 18-month transition period was however granted for entities whom wished to be rated in terms of the 2007 Codes of Good Practice to allow them to adopt B-BBEE strategies which speak to the Amended Codes, should it wish to. The election option expired on 01 May 2015.

4. As per Question (1), white children and white disabled persons are not excluded from Socio Economic Development recognition for B-BBEE purposes.

5. -BBEE Measurement is informed by a balanced scorecard, of which the measurement of Ownership makes up only 21.19%. Furthermore, the targets contained within all of the elements are not absolute, i.e none of the elements have a 100% target for black participation. The employment of and financial and social contributions to a white person therefore does not disadvantage a business looking to obtain B-BBEE points.

Reply:

(1) B-BBEE is not an exception to the principle of equality in terms of section 9 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa:

In fact, section 9(2) of the Constitution states that:

“Equality includes the full and equal enjoyment of all rights and freedoms.

To promote the achievement of equality, legislative and other measures designed to protect or advance persons, or categories of persons, disadvantaged by unfair discrimination may be taken.”

In promoting equality as envisaged above, the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Act No. 53 of 2003 (“the Act”) was enacted and subsequently amended by the B-BBEE Amendment Act No. 46 of 2013. The Act as amended and the B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice constituted the legislative and other measures which are designed to protect or advance persons or categories of persons disadvantaged by unfair discrimination.

  • Section 14(1) of the Act entrust the Minister of Trade and Industry to make regulations with regard to:
    • Any matter that in terms of the Act may or must be prescribed;
    • The lodging of complaints with the BEE Commission;
    • The conducting of investigations by the Commission;
    • The information that any organ of state, public entity or private enterprise is required to provide to the Commission and the form and period of such reporting;
    • Requiring all broad-based black economic empowerment transactions above a prescribed threshold to be reported to the Commission; and
    • Any ancillary or incidental administrative or procedural matter that is necessary to prescribe for the proper implementation and administration of the Act.
  • Section 14 (2) of the Act provides as follows:
    • The Minister may by notice in the Gazette issue guidelines and practice notes relating to the interpretation and application of the Act.

(2) B-BBEE is an integral part of the principle of equality in terms of section 9 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa;

- In terms of the Statement 000 of the B-BBEE Act 46 of 2013, as amended-

- Paragraph 12: Duration of the Codes

  • A Code remains in effect until amended, substituted or repealed under Section 9 of the Act.
  • The Minister may review the Codes at any stage and regular reviews will take place to monitor the implementation of BBBEE throughout the economy

With reference to product licences that fall under the authority of the SA Bureau of Standards, (a) what number of product licences has expired, (b) what steps has his department taken to eradicate the backlog, (c) (i) what is the name of each product that has an expired licence and (ii) on what date did each licence expire and (d) what is the cost to the economy with regard to expired licences?

Reply:

The management of the SABS has provided the Department with the following information.

  1. The SABS does not issue product licences. Since the promulgation of new legislation, the SABS Act of 2008, the SABS Mark is a voluntary tool for quality assurance in the domestic and global market.
  2. The SABS Mark continues to be issued. Companies that hold an expired SABS Mark can continue to use it even if it has expired. A SABS Division was created in 2017 to deal with the backlog and provides access to laboratories all over the country to test products as well as provide the necessary governance and assurance oversight of these SABS conformity assessment services.
  3. The management of the SABS has not provided a satisfactory response containing the requisite information. I have written to the SABS management demanding that they do in fact provide an urgent response to the Department of Trade and Industry.
  4. No calculation of this cost has been undertaken.

The Department of Trade and Industry is the only shareholder of the SABS. In my capacity as the Minister of Trade and Industry, in the light of the above and with respect to ongoing concerns relating to the SABS Mark function, I recently gave instructions to the SABS Board to urgently oversee a detailed process to develop a turnaround strategy for SABS. This will, inter alia, include a full scope of all the existing SABS Mark functions and processes involved in developing the Mark; operational challenges and stakeholder engagements in order to strengthen this critical pillar of SA’s industrialisation effort. I shall provide a full report to Parliament in this regard in due course.

Reply:

GSSSD RESPONSE:

(1) Yes, the Department has a Sexual Harassment Policy in place.

(i) According to the dti Sexual Harassment Policy’s reporting procedure, employees who are of the view that they may have fallen victim of sexual harassment are strongly encouraged to report the case directly to the Manager: Employment Relations or the Manager: Quality of Worklife. All such reports are treated in the strictest confidence and are dealt with in a sensitive and supportive manner. Upon receiving the complaint (due to its employment equity-related nature) the matter is referred to the focal person for Employment Equity and Transformation for thorough investigation. A report with findings and recommendations is compiled and submitted to the Deputy Director-General responsible for employment equity, for implementation.

(ii) Due to the sensitivity and seriousness of sexual harassment, the disciplinary procedure is utilised to address the complaint. In problematic cases of sexual harassment involving sexual assault such as rape, molestation, attempted rape or physical assault, the alleged harasser is suspended with full pay pending the outcome of the disciplinary hearing.

For cases such as attempted rape, molestation, physical assault, rape or persistent harassment, the Chairperson of the disciplinary hearing uses the Disciplinary Code and Procedure to determine the sanction. The victim of sexual assault has the right to open separate criminal and/or civil claims against the alleged harasser and the employer. The legal rights of the complaint are in no way limited by the dti Sexual Harassment Policy.

According to information provided by the management of the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS):

a) The SABS has 30 business units undertaking testing.

b) The SABS conducts testing as part of conformity assessment in line with the prescripts of ISO 17 000. Testing falls into 3 categories as follows; Third Party Testing where a product complies fully with a standard and the testing activities were conducted by an independent third party (SABS); Second Part Testing where the SABS tests products on behalf of another institution which defines the required specification and First Party Testing where the SABS provides product development support to manufacturing companies.

c) The management of the SABS has not provided a satisfactory response containing the requisite information. I have written to the SABS management demanding that they do in fact provide an urgent response to the Department of Trade and Industry.

d) As above.

The Department of Trade and Industry is the only shareholder of the SABS. In my capacity as the Minister of Trade and Industry, in the light of the above and with respect to ongoing concerns relating to the SABS testing function, I recently gave instructions to the SABS Board to urgently oversee a detailed process to develop a turnaround strategy for SABS.

Profile picture: Shivambu, Mr F

Shivambu, Mr F to ask the Minister of Trade and Industry

With reference to the reply to question 3470 on 9 November 2017, (a) what is the name of each person transacting on behalf of the trust, (b) what is the name of each beneficiary of the transaction in respect of the trust, (c) what is the total amount that has been transferred, (d) who is the owner of each trust and (e) on what date was each transaction registered?

In response to PQ 3789, the list of transactions registered as at 21 November 2017 is attached as Annexure A. As the B-BBEE Commission does not register trusts but major B-BBEE transactions, we outline the process for registration of major B-BBEE transactions below:

The Explanatory Notice issued by the Commission on 13 June 2017, pursuant to the threshold for major B-BBEE transaction the Minister of Trade and Industry issued on 9 June 2017 in Notice No. 551 in Government Gazette No. 40898 (“Notice”) prescribes documents that must accompany B-BBEE18 for registering a major B-BBEE transactions, which includes trust deeds where applicable.

As of 21 November 2017, the B-BBEE Commission has received two hundred and nineteen (219) major B-BBEE transactions for registration and of these seventy-five (75) involve trusts. Each trust deed identifies the trustees and important to note that not all trusts have undergone the process of registration at the Masters office as at the date of registration of a major transaction.

Further, the Explanatory Notice requires any party to the transaction to register the transaction to the B-BBEE Commission. Most of the transactions are either registered by the party which sells shares or an asset to black people or a third party nominated by the party (ies) to the transaction such as consultants or attorneys.

Furthermore, we wish to advice that there are three types of transactions:

Transactions concluded prior to the amendment of the Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Act 53 of 2003. In terms of the Notice, parties to such transaction are encouraged to voluntarily register the transaction. These are not mandatory to register.

Transactions concluded as of 24 October 2014 when the amended Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Act, 46 of 2013 came into effect. The Notice required such transaction to be registered within sixty (60) days from date the threshold was gazetted. The B-BBEE Regulations require the B-BBEE Commission to assess each transaction upon registration.

Transactions registered within fifteen (15) days of being concluded. The B-BBEE Commission will not be able to determine the value that black people derived, because the transaction is at an infant stage.

The B-BBEE Commission will publish a report annually of these transactions which will provide details that will include the value and benefits to black beneficiaries, who in essence are indirect shareholders through a trust. The obligation to report major B-BBEE transactions only commenced on 9 June 2017, and the B-BBEE Commission is in the process of registering and assessing in line with the Notice.

Mente-Nqweniso, Ms NV to ask the Minister of Trade and Industry

With reference to his reply to question 3174 on 30 October 2017, what are the (a) relevant details and (b) black economic empowerment status level of service providers and/or contractors from which (i) his department and (ii) the entities reporting to him procured services in the past five years?

Reply:

Due to the detailed information requested for the department and its entities per order issued during the past 5 years it will unfortunately not be possible to provide a meaningful response within the limited time frame allowed in responding to Parliamentary questions.

The information requested is not readily available and supporting documents will have to be requested from archives filed off site.

Further to that it should also be noted that the BEE status level as requested per supplier will not cover the 5 year period and that the department previously recorded and reported on the HDI status of suppliers. The software system that was used at that stage is no longer in existence as it has been discontinued with the implementation of the Central Supplier Database hosted at National Treasury.

Based on the above it is proposed that the department be allowed more time to gather information and that a response be submitted directly to the member.
