Persal Information Request Form


The Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act, No. 4 of 2013 requires that all departments must review their current practices relating to the processing and use of personal information and ensure that their privacy related risks are properly managed.  PERSAL Notice No. 326 of 2014 indicated that departments are responsible for their own information and must strictly observe security protocols when sharing PERSAL information with third parties. 

PERSAL data is classified as confidential and should be managed as such.  When the information request form is approved, the Human Resource Information Systems (HRIS) sub-directorate will request that all PERSAL information users fill in the PERSAL information request form to enable them to be provided with information from PERSAL. 

This is the way of ensuring practices for the protection of confidentiality, authenticity, and integrity of PERSONAL information.
