South Africa has a well-developed and formally regulated company law regime. All South African businesses are governed by the New Companies Act No 71 of 2008 which has been modernised and brought into line with international best practices. This applies in particular to public companies, communications and corporate governance. At the same time, it has been harmonised with other South African legislation, such as the Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA) and the Electronic Communications and Transactions (ECT) Act.
