All prospective suppliers who want to apply for a listing as a preferred provider on the HWSETA database must make use of the self-registration portal of the Central Supplier Database.
Providers must first register as a primary user on the Central Supplier Database and accept the terms and conditions as legally binding and enforceable.
Registration is open to only prospective suppliers.
The access and use of the Central Supplier Database by a user is determined by the category of the registration of the user and the functionality allocated by the Central Supplier Database to that category.
The supplier may not register on the Central Supplier Database through unauthorized use of any detail of another supplier. The National Treasury may take any steps it considers necessary against a supplier who registers or attempts to register on the Central Supplier Database through unauthorised use of any detail of another supplier.
A supplier hereby authorises the State to use the key information of the supplier from the Central Supplier Database for procurement processes.
A unique supplier number and security code will be allocated and suppliers will be required to keep their data updated regularly and should confirm at least once a year that their data is still current, and verification of relevant supplier data against SARS, CIPC etc. will be done regularly as required.
The Central Supplier Database website can be accessed on www.csd.gov.za
A supplier can access the Central Supplier Database through the internet. Below are recommended browsers:
- Chrome from version 40

Suppliers who do not have internet or computer access will be able to liaise with an organ of the State for assistance. It is foreseen that the Thusong, SEDA and Post Offices in the Provinces will also be used to assist with supplier self-registration.
