Important Notice from MMA: POPI in now an act

The Protection of Personal Information Bill is now an Act! It was signed on 17 November by President Zuma and published in the Government Gazette this morning, 27 November 2013.

The Information Regulators still need to be appointed and therefore the actual commencement date is unconfirmed. The next steps are allocation of funds and suitable candidates to be interviewed. Once complete this will again be published in the Government Gazette along with the commencement date.

Organisations have been given one year to ensure they make themselves compliant. We would recommend that all parties take these steps immediately to avoid the hefty fines that are envisaged for non-compliance.
