On Monday, 22 July 2020, the President announced the long-awaited commencement date of the Protection of Personal Information Act (“POPI”).
The bulk of the provisions of the Act will now come into force on 01 July 2020, with a 12-month transition period. All businesses and entities will need to comply with the Act by 01 July 2021.
In 2019, Venns held free seminars on the implications of POPI and we intend rolling out a similar events via webinar in the near future. We will keep you informed of developments.
