This is hopefully the last Gazette Watch for the year, as we are all exhausted and all of us without exception cannot wait to see the back of 2020- a truly annus horribilis year.

This Gazette Watch tables all Government Gazette movements over the period 1 November – 6 December 2020.

We will however monitor movements over December 2020 and let you have a heads up should something important take place which may have an impact on your operation.

We would like to thank you all for your continued support over this past year, which has been a difficult one for all of us.

As a token of our appreciation (subscribers) we are pleased to announce that we have developed a toolbox housing a fresh set of POPIA Templates which can be accessed by clicking on the hyperlinks below, which we believe you may find useful.

Finally, we would like to wish you all the very best for the festive season, stay safe, stay strong and goodbye until next year.

 Alison and her Team.
