"We verify key credentials of our certified Black Suppliers through a Proprietary Due-Diligence Methodology that the SASDC developed in collaboration with our Corporates & other Strategic Partners"


What is Certification?


Black supplier undergo a rigorous certification process that is approved by the SASDC’s members.  It is a collectively endorsed methodology and standard for assessing and certifying black suppliers with whom they would be prepared to transact. This database:

• Is owned, managed and maintained by the Council.
• Only contains bona-fide black suppliers that have been certified as “transaction-ready” to do business with Council members.
• Is aligned with the supplier assessment and vetting processes that Council members would normally undertake with all their new suppliers.
• Is aimed at reducing the cost and time that would be expended independently by each of the council members in the absence of such a database.
