Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) is a form of Economic Empowerment initiated by the South African government. The "Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Act (53/2003): Codes of Good Practice on Black Economic Empowerment" was gazetted on 9 February 2007 in the government gazette 29617. Companies in South Africa that deal with the government or parastatals must be empowered as required by the Preferential Procurement Act. In return, these companies require their suppliers to be empowered to improve their rating at government. Thus Broad-Based Empowerment is driven down the supply chain.
