The Supreme Court of Appeal ruling on the Preferential Procurement Policy Framework Act has cast further legitimacy doubts on B-BBEE. The public policy debate on BEE and black entrepreneurship in postapartheid SA has been reduced to three main approaches.

This paradigm mainly focuses on the Broad-Based BEE Act, codes of good practice and regulatory compliance.
