Compliance Processes

  • Ownership compliance

These audits establish best practice handling across a broad spectrum of local and international internet operations and are invaluable to any organisation diligently operating a public facing website in South Africa.

Please Note : All certification processes are undertaken by NCRASA on behalf of the applicant only after we have received full payment for the processes to be undertaken. Depending on the backlog of tasks, certification can take anywhere from one week to one month to complete. To get your website certification process started please click here. Certificates are valid for a period of 12 months following the date of issue. This does not mitigate all risk given the nature of evolving web. Website compliance audits be ordered as a monthly or bi-monthly process, depending on the nature and scale of the business change to web site content or publicly available access to data infrastructures.
