The POPI Act will have the effect of increasing market demand for shredding. Companies and individuals not already destroying unwanted confidential information will begin to do so. Those in the habit and discipline of shredding will have cause to consider more secure levels of destruction. In the UK for example the Data Protection Act changed market demand from predominantly straight cut shredding to predominantly cross cut & micro cut shredding in the space of two to three years. FlexiQ Systems cc (South Africa) is an authorized distributor and dealer that offers a comprehensive range of paper shredders from the largest brands with the best prices.
