Compliance Requirements for NPOs in South Africa:
Protection of Personal Information (POPIA):
Ensuring compliance with relevant legislation is of paramount importance for Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs) in South Africa. One such significant legal framework is the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA).
POPIA, South Africa’s comprehensive data protection law, plays a vital role in safeguarding the privacy and personal information of individuals. It governs the entire data lifecycle, encompassing the collection, use, storage, and dissemination of personal information.
NPOs, just like any other organisations, are subject to the provisions of POPIA. They must uphold the highest standards of data protection and privacy, ensuring that they handle personal information with the utmost care and responsibility.
