The trade in Second-hand Goods, which includes Pawn broking, Auctioneers, General second-hand dealers and all other categories, is regulated by various legislations. Most importantly is the Act on Second-hand Goods, Act 6 of 2009 (previously Act 23 of 1955). The above mentioned Acts are also applicable to the second-hand trade. In most of the compliance documents of the S.D.P.B. , registers, agreements etc, requirements of more than one of the applicable Acts are included to comply with legal documents and are available to the members of the S.D.P.B.
 
The S.D.P.B. is an Association which was founded in 1987 to represent the second-hand trade. It has an excellent track record in research and development and represents the trade at various Government departments and Regulatory Institutions. It contributes to legislative processes, training of its members as well as S.A.P.S. members etc.
 
The corporate joint experience of its members is in excess of 50 years and is a huge advantage to the Association. It has its own website where registered members can access the database and receive regular updates, news, notifications on all relevant legislation, Regulatory Institution requirements, S.A.P.S. National Instructions and all other training documents, printed books, registers, contracts and much more.

Within Act 6 of 2009, Section 22 & 25 are of ultimate importance dealing with obligation and compliance requirement procedures for dealers to report any suspicious transactions or stolen goods. Sec. 36 and 37 of the General Amendment Act are of outmost importance and trading in stolen goods and or being in possession thereof could lead to prosecution and loss of a business.

  Therefore, dealers need the correct documents to protect them in case of prosecutions and an organisation that could guide, train and keep them informed about the various Law’s and also to negotiate collectively for the Second-hand Goods Trade and on behalf of its members, with relevant Government Departments, Regulatory Institutions etc regarding regulatory and other matters that could have an impact on the trade.
 
Correct printed documents, contracts and records are vital to keep you legal and even out of jail. Members of the S.D.P.B. enjoy the benefits of utilizing up to date systems / documents. 

The new Act, 6 of 2009, makes it compulsory for a Dealer to belong to an Accredited Association in order to benefit from exemptions applicable to Association members only. 

This Act came into effect during the course of 2012. Without exemptions it will be almost impossible to comply with the New Act and its administrative and recording requirements, which can have an impact on turnover targets, limited stock purchases, less profit. 
 
CAN YOU RUN OR OPERATE YOUR BUSINESS ON YOUR OWN? 
, be up to date with amended Laws, Regulations, Technical legal aspects, utilizing correct legal documents, contracts and record systems, SAPS National policies, directives, crime prevention product requests and information that should protect you? 

IF SO … congratulations!! – IF NOT! you need to join an Association with a good track record!

 THE CHOICE IS YOURS!!
