General
The committee has a mandate to insure that the IDM Industry operates with the highest ethical standards, respect for our code of conduct and is fully informed and guided in relevant legislation. We are seeking to achieve co-regulatory status with the Information Regulator of the POPI Act.

We deal with complaints from the public and companies and have generally satisfactorily resolved the issues.
