Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment Certification
The minister has approved IRBA (Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors) as a B-BBEE Regulatory body which came into effect in October 2011. This means that auditors can now be accredited by their own body, IRBA (Independent Regulatory Body for Auditors) in order to verify BEE certificates.
The Independent Regulatory Board for Auditors (IRBA) was pleased to announce that Notice 754: Amendment of the Codes of Good Practice was published in Government Gazette No. 34612 on 23 September 2011. Notice 754 contains Statement 005: Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment Verification that in terms of which the IRBA is appointed as the “Approved Regulatory Body” to approve registered auditors who meets the relevant requirements to provide B-BBEE Verification Assurance Services with effect from 1 October 2011.
The director of Strategic Audit Techniques Incorporated has met the necessary academic and registration requirements and was approved by the IRBA to provide B-BBEE Verification Services with effect from 10 October 2012.
Strategic Audit Techniques offers the following solutions to a client’s B-BBEE needs:
B-BBEE Strategy Planning
B-BBEE Consulting ( to help improve your score)
Any company that we offer consulting services to, however, cannot be verified by Strategic Audit Techniques due to independence issues. Once the measured entity has been verified, Strategic Audit Techniques can then be consulted on how the score of the measured entity can be improved in the forthcoming verification.
From the process of engagement when all staff members are required to sign confidentiality agreements, through to the issuing of the certificates, great care is taken to ensure that the Codes of Good Practice is implemented and the measures entity receives an accurate score which it deserves.
Client information is treated very confidential and our team of B-BBEE professionals makes sure that this process is done professionally and as “painless” as possible.
