PAPERLESS OFFICE – WHAT CAN I SIGN ELECTRONICALLY?
For the purposes of concluding contracts electronically and the growth of e-commerce, the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act 25 of 2002 (‘ECTA’) that came into force on 30 August 2002, is of major significance. ECTA makes provision for the recognition and regulation of electronic commerce and its provisions deal specifically with how, when and where an agreement concluded electronically, comes into existence. In so doing, ECTA made electronic signatures legal in 2002.

Even if you are a safe driver, statistics have reflected that reckless and negligent driving are common place in South Africa and you could be the innocent victim of such driving.
