Important Notes

 If your annual turnover is less than R5 million, then in terms of the DTI codes, you are classified as an Exempted Micro Enterprise (EME). If your company is classified as an EME, please include in your submission, a signed letter from your Auditor / Accountant confirming your company's most recent annual turnover is less than R5 million and percentage of black ownership and black female ownership in the company AND/OR BBBEE certificate and detailed scorecard from an accredited rating agency (e.g. permanent SANAS Member), should you feel you will be able to attain a better BBBEE score.


 Unfortunately, No payments can be made to a vendor until the vendor has been registered, and no vendor can be registered until the vendor application form, together with its supporting documentation, has been received and processed.


Please return the completed Supplier Declaration Form (SDF) together with the required supporting documents mentioned above to the Transnet Official who is intending to procure your company's services/products in order that he/she should complete and Internal Transnet Departmental Questionnaire before referring the matter to the appropriate Transnet Vendor Master Office.

Vendor Master Changes

  • Due to governance and fraud risks, any changes done on the vendor master records must be requested directly by the vendor.


  • The HOD or director of finance must authorize the changes and all supporting documentation of the required changes must have a commissioner of oath stamp.
