Construction Sector Charter Council (CSCC)
The Construction Sector Charter Council (CSCC) is an executive authority responsible for the overseeing and monitoring of the implementation of the Construction Sector Codes (CSC) of Good Practice, which is the legal and mandatory empowerment measurement tool for the construction industry.
The CSCC was created as a result of the gazetting of the Construction Sector Codes (CSC) on the 05th of June 2009 by the Minister of Trade and Industry in terms of Section 9 (1) of the Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment Act 53 0f 2003 (The B-BBEE Act) before it was amended by the B-BBEE amendment act of 2013.

The CSCC is made up of mandated representatives of the construction industry voluntary associations drawn from the established and emerging sector of the Built Environmental Professionals (BEPs) and contractor bodies (General Build and Civil) , the Department of Public Works (DPW) and labour unions. By signing the founding constitution, representatives of these parties committed to the transformation of the industry and agreed on the measurement instrument to report against this.
On 24 April 2014, the Construction Sector Charter Council (CSCC), the executive authority responsible for overseeing and monitoring the progress of transformation and empowerment in the construction sector, released its Baseline Report on the State and Progress of Transformation and Empowerment in the Construction Sector (for the period 2009-2013).
Alignment of the Construction Sector Code to the BBBEE Codes
On 02 November 2015, the dti released communication on the repeal of sector codes: -
"Sector Charter Councils have until the 15 November 2015 to submit aligned Sector Codes for approval to Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr Rob Davies.
All existing Sector Codes that have not submitted application for approval to the Minister to be aligned with Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment Codes of Good Practice will be repealed.
Once sector codes are repealed, entities operating in the affected sectors will use the Amended B-BBEE Codes of Good Practice for measurement.
The background to this action by Minister Davies is that on 15 May 2015, all the existing Sector Codes which were not aligned to the Amended Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) Codes of Good Practice were given further extension to complete the alignment process by 30 October 2015. The extension was given through a Notice, Government Gazette Number 38799, which further stated that a consideration shall be made to repealing those sector codes that are not aligned and ready for gazetting by 30 October 2015."
