  • RICA (Regulation of Interception of Communications and Provision of Communication-Related Information Act 70 of 2002) regulates instances when you (the User) may record a communication (a direct communication). In terms of RICA, the User may record a communication that he or she is a party to.  If the User is not a party to the communication, the User can only record the communication if one of the party’s to the communication has given prior written consent.  Thus where the User is not a party at all to the communication, the User cannot record the communication unless one of the other party’s consents in writing.  In the context of a meeting, if the User is a party to the meeting (i.e. is a party to the communication) then the meeting can be recorded.  If the User is not a party at all to the meeting, the meeting cannot be recorded without the written consent of one of the other persons who is a party to the meeting.  In the case of a video recording or taking a picture of conduct such as a scene of a crime, there is no legislation which prohibits this, therefore the mere video recording of the conduct and not the recording of what is said is not precluded.
