Dear members,

Kindly see below the regulations published last night that will apply during the lockdown.  Please familiarise yourself with the content and the requirements thereof.  

Please ensure that you have done the following by midnight!

  • Identify who in your business / practice will be essential. (Consider the Occupational Health & Safety Act and the National Health Act obligation you must protect your staff and all patients / others)
  • Have your “permits” for all staff. Including yourself, who will be travelling from tomorrow.  Use the Annexure C in the Regulations published last night.  See a copy of the permit attached below.  It is recommended to supplement the permits with explanation of the details of each person’s role and responsibilities etc.  A template is available to PPO SAOPA members who has paid their membership fees for 2020.  Log in to the member’s portal at to obtain a copy.
  • Register your business at the CIPC website as essential.  This portal is NOT UP YET, however, please check in during the day.  (It is still unclear what non-company practices must do, but we will update you as soon as the information becomes available)
