The Institute of Directors in Southern Africa (IoDSA) formally introduced the
King Code of Governance Principles and the King Report on Governance (King III).
The Code and the Report which were unveiled at the Sandton Convention Centre in
Sandton, Johannesburg, in September 2009.
King III came into effect on 1 March 2010 – until then King II applied. The
new Code and Report also falls in line with the Companies Act no 71 of 2008,
which became effective on 1 May 2011.
Like its 56 commonwealth peers, King III has been written in accordance to
the comply or explain principle based approach of governance, but specifically
the apply or explain regime. This regime is currently unique in the Netherlands
and now in South Africa. Whilst this approach remains a hotly debated issue
globally, the King III Committee continues to believe it should be a
non-legislative code on principles and practices
