Apartheid as a general social policy has been in effect since the first Europeans took control of South Africa. It’s nothing new; apartheid is simply legalised racism and white nationalism one step short of slavery.
Legally, apartheid as a legal system ended in 1994 when the NP was voted out of office. Apartheid was technically in effect from 1948 through 1994, but its ramifications are still ongoing.

For a quite good overview of arpartheid, please see the Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apartheid
