Yesterday the newly formed Information Regulator held a public media briefing in Cape Town. Key points from the briefing are available on their website.
The Regulator is actively working on operationalising the office and gaining insights from established information regulators across various countries, including Germany and the United Kingdom. The expected commencement date of the remaining POPI conditions is during 2018.
