Access to information

PAIA (The Promotion of Access to Information Act 2 of 2000) gives you the right of access to any information held by the State or by another person and that is required for the exercise or protection of any rights. This means you can request access to information held by public bodies, as well as from a natural or juristic person (private body). In the case of a request for access to information held by a natural or juristic person, you have to indicate that the information requested is required for the exercise or protection of any rights.

The right of access to information is your right in terms of section 32 of the Constitution and PAIA gives effect to section 32 by amongst others:

  1. providing and detailing the procedures that must be followed in order to make a request for information;
  2. stating from whom you can make a request;
  3. detailing the duties of the bodies, from whom you have made a request;
  4. describing what information can be requested;
  5. describing when the requested information must / may be refused;
  6. describing what mechanisms and procedures are available to you if your request for access to information is refused.
