NAB submission on the Rules and Procedures for the CCC

05 March 2010

On 22 January 2010, the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (“ICASA”), published in Notice 45 of 2010, Government Gazette 32884, its intention to prescribe regulations in respect of procedural rules for the adjudication of complaints and resolution of disputes that are filed with or referred to the Complaints and Compliance Committee (“CCC”), and to provide for matters related thereto (“draft rules and procedures”). The draft rules and procedures are drafted in terms of sections 4(1) and (4) of the Electronic Communications Act 36 of 2005 (“the EC Act”) read in conjunction with section 4(3)(j) of the Independent Communications Authority Act 13 of 2000 (“the ICASA Act”).  The NAB recognizes that clear rules and procedures will ensure that complaints concerning alleged non compliance by licensees are dealt with in a fair manner.  The NAB supports the need for clarity regarding the rules and procedures of the CCC and welcome the publication of the draft regulations by the Authority.
