The Consumer Protection Act 68 of 2008 (CPA) is taking effect in stages. The sections governing the establishment of the National Consumer Commission (NCC) became effective on 29 April 2010. The remainder of the Act has been deferred to 31 March 2011 (see GN 917 in Government Gazette 33581 of 23 September 2010). The Minister is also given the discretion to defer the effect of specified provisions for a period of not more than six additional months, on the grounds that additional time is required for adequate preparation of the administrative systems necessary to ensure efficient and effective implementation of that provision (Items 2(2) and 2(3) of Schedule 2 to the Act).
