Dear employer

As previously communicated, every employer who processes any personal information must register an Information Officer as per the Protection of Personal Information Act.

The Information Regulator has now published a guidance note on the registration of Information Officers. This Guidance Note provides the application form, the procedure, as well as the electronic, postal and physical addresses to which the application form may be sent for purposes of formal registration of Information Officers, and where applicable, Deputy Information Officers with the Information Regulator.

As per the previous notice, the registration of Information- and Deputy Information Officers will commence on 1 May 2021 and will be an ongoing process.

For any assistance in this regard, please contact your regional NEASA branch.
