For those who may have missed it, the DTI has extended the deadline for complying with the new B-BBEE Codes by six months from 1 October, 2014, to 30 April, 2015.
Here's the original Government Gazette notice
There are plenty of threads in this forum that discuss various aspects of the new Codes, however, I have a blog post that highlights three particularly important implications:
1. Greater emphasis on procurement and supplier development.
2. Vast differences in compliance ease and cost depending on your company profile.
3. Extreme penalties for white-owned companies, and extreme benefits for black-owned ones.
