We have recently heard rumor that the construction sector code will be gazetted in the last week of March 2017 or the first week of April 2017.
Please keep in mind that this is speculation so far and not fact. We believe the Construction sector code will look very different to that of the draft construction sector code, this being due to the complications and contradictions which are apparent in the draft.
We foresee an ICT scenario where the gazetted document will be different to the draft. Also, the effective date will be the date of gazette. We have heard the above from many different sources with the motivation of the Amended legislation being in the market for a couple of years now.
Entities who have complied to the Amended Legislation, or planned accordingly, should not have too much of a difficult transition period, but entities who have not planned according to the new legislation will be under pressure to reach compliance status.
We have also heard rumor that the Agriculture sector code is also soon to be released. Although we have heard this for almost a year now, we believe that this will be released soon. Again, the implementation date of the sector code we believe will be the date of the gazette.
