Protection of Personal Information Bill signed into law

Lusanda Bill
28 November 2013

President Jacob Zuma today signed the Protection of Personal Information Bill into law. 

This act seeks to strengthen the right of personal information of South African citizens. 

Presidential Spokesperson Mac Maharaj said the Act will give effect to the right to privacy, by introducing measures to ensure that the personal information of an individual is safeguarded when it is processed by responsible parties.

Maharaj added that the Act also seeks to balance the right to privacy against other rights, particularly the right of access to information, and to generally protect important interests, including the free flow of information within and across the borders of the Republic.
