As of 30 September 2016, the IRBA will no longer be the regulatory body for accreditation of B-BBEE rating agencies, as per communication dated 4 March 2016:
Any entity that seeks to apply for B-BBEE Accreditation to issue B-BBEE Verification Certificates post 30 September 2016 or wishes to participate in the B-BBEE Verification Industry must thus follow the Code Series 000, Statement 005, Section 5 of the Codes of Good Practice application process to the Accreditation Body (SANAS).
"Accreditation means third-party attestation related to conformity assessment bodies conveying formal demonstration of their competence to carry out specific conformity assessment tasks" – www.sanas.co.za
RVN Empowerment Services has taken the necessary actions to acquire accreditation from The South African National Accreditation System (SANAS), the only national body responsible for carrying out accreditations in respect of conformity assessment, which includes the accreditation of B-BBEE rating agencies. We are proud to be associated with SANAS and excited about working together and finding the best solutions for our clients.
Previous IRBA verification procedures differ from SANAS requirements, and RVN Empowerment Services will be undertaking the necessary training to enable us to meet these requirements.
Nanette Coetzee, RVN Empowerment Services Director, has over 6 years' experience in SANAS accreditation and verification. Our clients can rest assured that we will continue to deliver excellent service with our dedicated team.
