Take-down Statistics

ISPA is a recognised Industry Representative Body in terms of the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act (25 of 2002). One of the requirements for this recognition is that ISPA’s members must have a Take-Down Notice (TDN) process in place to allow for unlawful content to be reported. ISPA operates a TDN process on behalf of all ISPA members and administers a number of requests each year.

In the interests of transparency, ISPA publishes the overall number of TDNs filed with ISPA each year, and some statistical information about the outcome and categories of the notices.
