CAPE TOWN – South Africa’s Wireless Application Service Providers’ Association (Waspa) has secured the services of a dedicated compliance manager to oversee the department tasked with monitoring members‘ products and services offered to cellular consumers.
Waspa’s more than 400 members are required by the self-regulating industry body to advertise and provide their mobile content and applications services in accordance with its world-leading Code of Conduct.
The new head of Waspa’s Compliance Department, Tshepo Jeremia (Jerry) Maseko, joins the team that proactively evaluates activity by Waspa members to ensure they remain on the right side of the highly-regarded Code.
Ensuring that mobile content products and value-added services offered by Waspa members and their clients, are actively and continuously monitored, tested and checked for compliance with the provisions of the Waspa Code of Conduct, is a daily operational objective of the Association’s compliance department.
It is this fastidiousness that has helped create consumer confidence in the country’s mobile content and applications industry since Waspa was founded with the full support of SA’s mobile network operators and other industry stakeholders almost two decades ago.
