Protection of Personal Information Act

The President of South Africa proclaimed the commencement date of the Protection of Personal Information Act 4 of 2013 to be 1 July 2020. A grace period of one year was granted for all parties who process personal information to comply with the Act. This means that the effective date for compliance is 1 July 2021.
The POPI Act will change the way businesses deal with information and data in an information-driven economy and society. An understanding of this Act will benefit all individuals, organisations and businesses.

To support clients in their journey towards POPI Act compliance, Moore South Africa is releasing a free eBook – to unpack the essential parts of the Act and to offer practical guidance towards compliance.
