Information regarding website regulations for covid-19 awareness

As per DIRECTIONS gazetted on 26 March 2020 by the Minister of Communications and Digital Technologies, it is now

a requirement for ALL websites ending in .za to have a clear link to published on their landing

page. (see paragraph 5.1.4 of the published DIRECTIONS)

This was done to aid in the dissemination of information about COVID-19, and to assist in combating the spread of the virus.


There may be a discrepancy in ‘Section 3’ of the official DIRECTIONS gazetted in terms of who the DIRECTIONS actually apply to.

Please read the DIRECTIONS to clarify.


We submitted a formal request for the Department to verify this, and the Department responded via official letter, linked below.

The letter indicates that ALL websites ending in .za are required to have the link to on their landing page
