Data Protection Compliance in Kenya:
Registration Process with the Government

South-End Tech Limited has successfully supported Dalberg Research in registration as a Data
Controller with the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner (ODPC) in Kenya. On Friday, February
10th, 2023, South-End Tech Limited presented a certificate of registration as a Data Controller in Kenya
to Dalberg Research.

The certificate is valid for two (2) years, and the law requires Dalberg Research as the Data Controller to
institute organizational and technical safeguards to protect personal data.

Registration with the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner (ODPC) is the first step toward the
compliance journey under the Data Protection Act 2019. By registering with the Data Commissioner,
data controllers and processors demonstrate their commitment to data protection and compliance with
the legal requirements in Section 18 of the Data Protection Act 2019 and Data Protection (Registration of
Data Controllers and Data Processors) Regulations 2021.

Our simple guide to registering your entity
with the ODPC is as follows:

Once registered as a data controller or processor, the
Office of the Data Protection Commissioner (ODPC)
requires your entity to display the certificate in a
conspicuous place (website included). The certificate
is valid for two years. Each registered entity is
required to renew the certificate of registration thirty
(30) days before expiry.
