3 organizations/institutions that control and regulate the media in South Africa :
1. Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) ; ICASA derives its mandate from ICASA Act of 2000, the Independent Broadcasting Act of 1993, Broadcasting act of 1999, and Telecommunications Authority Act of 1996. ICASA's mandate includes the regulation of broadcasting in the public interest, and to perform adjudication functions.
2. Media Diversity and Development Agency (MDDA) ; Government took an initiative to set up an independent agency that will address problems of the media development and diversity in the country and provide assistance through loans and subsidies to the marginalised groups (MDDA position paper, November 2000). The MDDA's mandate is to promote diversity and development in print, broadcasting and new media. It works with bodies dealing with Telecommunications, licensing and film. Also develops policies that are informed by ongoing research and evaluation.
3. Broadcasting Complaints Commission of South Africa (BCCSA) ; The BCCSA was set up by National Association of broadcaster of Southern Africa in 1993 to adjudicate and mediate complaints against broadcasters/broadcasting licence holders.
