Private security personnel and activities have been regulated in South Africa from approximately 1990 when the Security Officers' Board started to implement the Security Officers Act 92 of 1987. Although assented to on 6 October 1987, this law only came into force on 3 April 1989 and was amended on various occasions in order to improve the regulatory framework (see Security Officers Amendment Act 25 of 1990, Security Officers Amendment Act 119 of 1992, Security Officers Amendment Act 64 of 1996 and Security Officers Amendment Act 104 of 1997). It was finally repealed and replaced by the Private Security Industry Regulation Act 56 of 2001 ("the act"), which has created a new regulatory framework and which came into operation on 14 February 2002 (see generally for comparative purposes Ottens, Olschok and Landrock (1999) ).
