Prof De Visser appointed as member of the advisory committee of the SA Law Reform Commission

The Minister of Justice and Correctional Services, Hon Michael Masutha has appointed the Director of the Dullah Omar Institute, Prof Jaap de Visser, as a member of the advisory committee of the South African Law Reform Commission.

The purpose of the appointment is to participate in the South African Law Reform Commission's Project 146 on the Review of Regulatory, Compliance and Reporting Burden Imposed on Local Government by Legislation.

The object of the project is to identify regulatory, compliance and reporting obligations imposed on local government by legislation that hinder its ability to discharge its constitutional mandate, and to make recommendations on how identified unnecessary, excessive or inefficient burdens can be streamlined, reduced or abrogated.

The recommendations should aim to improve the current legislative framework in order to ensure efficiency of local government and enhance its ability to focus on delivering services to communities.

The Principal State Law Adviser, South African Law Reform Commission, Adv Fanyana Mdumbe congratulated Prof De Visser  on his appointment as a member of an advisory committee. “I trust that your association with the Commission will be a pleasant one and I wish to assure you of the Commission's support with the challenging task,” he said.
