Regulation of the Video-Surveillance Law

Law 2/2020 of 22 January (the “VideoSurveillance Law”) establishes the legal framework applicable to the authorisation, installation and use of video-surveillance systems for capturing, recording and processing images and sound. The law is based on a fundamental notion: security.
There was a need to intervene by legislating on this matter to maintain public safety and to help all entities involved in matters of this nature.
As a result, on 21 December 2021, the Angolan Executive approved the Regulation on the Law on Video Surveillance (Presidential Decree 318/21 - the “Regulation”), which sets out the technical criteria and procedures that allow for the installation and use of video surveillance systems.
This Regulation specifies the scope of application of the Law.
In addition to increasing the security of Angolan citizens, this Regulation allows state agencies to (re)assert themselves as the main guarantors of public order and security
