Construction Work Permit Application
vs
CIDB Grade 7 Project Value

 

In terms of Gazette Notice 357 dated 5 July 2019, the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB) project tender value (upper limit) for Grade 7 has move from R40million to R60million, this came into effect on 7 October 2019. The current Department of Employment and Labour (DoE&L) exemption Notice for Construction Work Permit Application, dated 26 July 2019, refers to the the value as being R40million.

 

Saiosh wrote to the DoE&L and asked whether the Department will be amending the current exemption Notice for Construction Work Permit Application, to stipulate Grade 7 = R60million, or will it automatically be deemed that the value will be R60million based on the CIDB’s notice with the new tender values. 

 

 The Department has responded as follows (on 22 October 2019):

 

"Good day Mr Nortje,

 

Please note that the revised CIDB grading threshold should be read in accordance with the 26th July 2018 Exemption. The revised “tender limit “ of Grade 7 is now R60m therefore clients must apply for a construction work permit where the construction work exceeds R60m effective from 7th October 2019

 

Kind Regards

 

Hilton Ganesen
Deputy Director : Specialist for Construction
Department of Employment and Labour : Head Office, Pretoria"
