The Department of Home Affairs has called for input by 2 June 2024 on draft regulations under the Border Management Authority Act, 2021. Focusing on personnel matters, among other things the proposed new regulations deal with:

  • the structure and functioning of the border guard
  • officer commissioning
  • officer training
  • qualifications and competency standards
  • the use of firearms
  • a code of conduct
  • disciplinary proceedings
  • complaints and grievances affecting the work of the authority, and
  • appeals processes.

They also provide for the establishment and staffing of a border risk management and targeting centre.

This is noting that the Act commenced incrementally between January 2021 and August 2022 and is now fully in force.
