POPIA: Registration of information officers commences

POPIA: Registration of information officers commences

As per the POPI Act and Information Regulator, the date for compliance with the POPI Act remains 30 June 2021.

However, the Information Regulator has published a notice indicating that the date for the registration of Information Officers, which would have been 31 March 2021, has been postponed.

The date for registration of Information Officers will commence on 1 May 2021, and it will be an ongoing process.

As there is still only draft regulations, omitting the practical instructions for registration, there is still no mechanism in place for the registration of Information Officers as yet.

We await the publishing of the final regulations on the Registration of Information Officers and will keep members abreast of any developments in this regard.
