Invitation to comment on 3 - year Criteria Review

In 2008, the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa, in partnership with industry stakeholders, embarked on a journey to review the Grading Criteria and Minimum Requirements as a result of various anomalies that had entered the grading system. This review process included an extensive consultation process with various stakeholders on key areas of the Criteria and Minimum Requirements.

We made a commitment then that the Grading Criteria and Minimum Requirements would be reviewed every 3 years to ensure that they are in line with international standards of quality, as well as relevant to international and local traveller needs.

To deliver on this commitment, we are happy to announce that the 3-year Review of the current Grading Criteria and Minimum Requirements has commenced.

The links below allow you to enter the survey and enable you to select the sections of the Grading Criteria or Minimum Requirements you wish to provide feedback on. This approach is designed to ensure you are able to provide feedback on specific areas without having to read through the entire category.
Kindly submit your feedback by Friday 18 January 2013, noon.
