South Africa's new data privacy laws that take effect tomorrow - What you must know

President Cyril Ramaphosa recently announced that certain sections of South Africa’s Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) will take effect from 1 July 2020.

The Act has been put into operation incrementally, with a number of sections of the Act having been implemented in April 2014.

While sections 110 and 114(4) of the Act will only be implemented on 30 June 2021, a number of sections will take effect from Wednesday 1 June.
 
Article mistake.

You refer to 1 June instead of 1 July.

While sections 110 and 114(4) of the Act will only be implemented on 30 June 2021, a number of sections will take effect from Wednesday 1 June. [1 July]
