The Preferential Procurement Regulations, 2017 ("the regulations") issued in terms of section 5 of the Preferential Procurement Policy Framework Act, 2000 (Act No. 5 of 2000), which came into effect on the of 1st April 2017, make provision for the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (the dtic) to designate sectors in line with national development and industrial policies for local production.

Regulation 8(1) and 8(2) of the Preferential Procurement Regulations 2017 prescribe that in the case of a designated sector, an organ of state must advertise the invitation to tender with a specific condition that only locally produced services or goods or locally manufactured goods with a stipulated minimum threshold for local production and content, will be considered.

These regulations apply to Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Program (REIPPPP) and the emergency power procurement round.

To support industry, project developers and renewable investors, this list has been developed for open use. The list provides a breakdown of local manufactures for the designated components or products.

This list is not an exhaustive resource and may be incomplete but is meant as a mechanism to support ecosystem development and growth.
