South Africa signed up to use ISO 8601 for date and time representation through national standard ARP 010:1989 in 1998.

Date[edit]

Even so, the old date format is still commonly used in the format "dd/mm/yyyy", with the "day month year" order being more common with non-numeric month designations.

Time[edit]

"h" as time separator, is still common (e.g., 03h25 in place of 03:25), particularly when only the time is given.
