Does South Africa have a Privacy Law?

Data protection in South Africa is governed primarily by the Protection of Personal Information Act 4 of 2013, enacted in November, 2013. The aims of the Act include promoting the protection of personal information processed by public and private bodies, introducing certain standards to establish minimum requirements for the processing of personal information, providing for the establishment of an Information Regulator and regulating the cross-border flow of personal information. There are eight conditions for the lawful processing of Personal Information, set out in terms of Chapter 3 of POPIA.
