The Companies Act (71of 2008) requires public and state-owned companies to appoint a company secretary and lists the secretary's statutory duties (s88). The third King Report on Corporate Governance for South Africa (King III) also sets out the responsibilities of the company secretary as the gatekeeper of good governance and stresses that the board should be assisted by a competent, suitably qualified and experienced company secretary (Principle 2.21).
