Businesses can now register their Information Officers online with the Information Regulator. Businesses must do so without delay to avoid any penalties or regulatory action. The Information Officer is usually the CEO or COO of the company and may delegate some functions to Deputy Information Officers, who must also be registered.
Please ensure that information officers are duly appointed and that the necessary information is submitted.
The online portal of the Information Regulator can be viewed here.
One can also contact the Information regulator on their email address: registration.IR@justice.gov.za .
For more information on registration and responsibilities please see the Guidance Note issued recently on 1 April.
If you need any assistance with rolling out your policies please contact us or see our starter kit on our online store!
