Compliance with black economic empowerment is measured on a Scorecard, which determines companies' eligibility for tenders, access to finance and new business opportunities. Companies acquire black economic empowerment status through implementing integrated strategies, policies and practices that impact the disciplines of broad-based black economic empowerment that will be reflected as a level 1-8 Contributor (1 being the highest level).

The Level 3 rating attained by Delta 7 Screenprinters will propel them to the next strategic Business-level by taking advantage of the multi-million Rand benefits available to them when they successfully qualified under the BEE Scorecard Guidelines as published by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI).
