Honeycomb BEE promises quality, diligence and extensive knowledge of B-BBEE. We uphold what is written in law and gazetted, helping you to truly transform your business

Supplier Vetting & Onboarding

Supplier vetting entails checking supplier ownership to confirm if the entity is 51% black-owned or more. We verify B-BBEE affidavits, tax certificates, share certificates and relevant operational licences.

Supplier Risk Assessment

Our team identifies the financial, ethical and reputational business risks posed by your suppliers. Non-compliant suppliers risk your company’s growth and ability to promote sustainable transformation in designated communities.


Supplier Compliance Assurance

We provide a detailed report on whether your suppliers meet B-BBEE requirements. Even if they have valid certificates, we report on compliance at an operational level, mitigating the risk of B-BBEE fronting.

Our B-BBEE Supplier Vetting Process

The risk assessment process follows 5 main steps:

  1. Onboarding: Share requested supplier documentation with our analysts. This enables us to set up the Quality Management System (QMS) and update our supplier database with a list of certificates.
  2. Document Validation: We validate the initial documentation of your suppliers.
  3. Document Monitoring: We ensure the most recent documents are on file at all times and monitor them using the QMS.
  4. Intermittent Criminal Checks (If Required): We ensure suppliers are not involved in any criminal activities inclusive of child labour, fraud or money laundering.
  5. Reporting: Detailed and accurate reporting at all times until the B-BBEE certificate expires.
