As technology enthusiasts, we’re always on the lookout for the latest developments in the industry. Recently, ICASA (the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa) have published a list of licensees who have been found to be non-compliant with various regulatory obligations and their annual submissions.

This announcement comes with a sense of urgency. These licensees have been given a deadline of September 29, 2023, to submit the necessary information to ICASA and rectify their compliance issues. Licensees who have either not started providing licensed services or have ceased their operations altogether are also under scrutiny. They must provide appropriate documentation to substantiate their current status.
For tech enthusiasts and stakeholders, this development highlights the importance of adherence to compliance regulations in the ever-evolving tech landscape. ICASA plays a crucial role in maintaining order and fairness within the industry, and non-compliance can have serious consequences for licensees.
It’s worth keeping an eye on how this situation unfolds, as it may set a precedent for future regulatory actions in the technology sector.
The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) is the regulatory authority for the South African communications sector.
