Protection of Personal Information Act published

The Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI) No. 4 of 2013 has finanally been published in the Government Gazette. This means that the POPI is now an Act of Parliament (and so a law of South Africa) but no commencement date has been published yet. The commencement date is a short notice in the Government Gazette as which is signed by the President of South Africa. In terms of s114 of POPI all companies will have 1 year after the commencement date to ensure that they comply with the requirements of POPI.
