About the cidb

Established by Act of Parliament (Act 38 of 2000), the Construction Industry Development Board (cidb) is a schedule 3A public entity, which promotes a regulatory and developmental framework that builds:

• Construction industry delivery capability for South Africa’s social and economic growth
• A proudly South African construction industry that delivers to globally competitive standards

As the cidb, we focus on:

• Sustainable growth, capacity development and empowerment
• Improved industry performance and best practice
• A transformed industry, underpinned by consistent and ethical procurement practices
• Enhanced value to clients and society

Fraud is a Reality​

Do not participate in corruption! cidb employees are employed to provide registration services that are seamless, efficient, and timely. Do not attempt to bribe staff for any service or favour. Remember integrity in life and in business goes a long way! It is not illegal to use a third party to assist with registration. Beware of unscrupulous agents whose promises are too good to be true. Falsifying information to manipulate grading is illegal. As the applicant, the contractor, not the agent, is accountable and liable for any misrepresentation to the cidb.
