How is ‘Rural’ Verified?

Introducing Topics of the TFM Talking Transformation Summit

on Tuesday, 1st February 2022, between 09H00 and 11H00

The inclusion of ‘Rural’ or an underdeveloped area in the criteria of the Generic Codes alludes to the Government's commitment to Rural Development that identifies infrastructure, poverty, land reforms, education and unemployment, amongst others. However, a B-BBEE Rating Agency must substantiate this status. In the absence of a clear definition of 'Rural', the article 'How is an Area Verified as Rural?' provides insight on how a B-BBEE Rating Agency substantiates such a claim.
