THE PROMOTION OF ACCESS TO INFORMATION ACT ('PAIA')

The PROMOTION OF ACCESS TO INFORMATION ACT of 2000 of South Africa ("PAIA") has the effect of making it necessary for various bodies, including private bodies (including private companies like FSG) to publish a manual that shall be available to all members of the public, that describes what information of such a body is available to the public, how the public may access that information, what fee such a body shall raise to provide that information, and what information the public is prohibited from accessing from that body.

The right to access records of PRIVATE BODIES is described in Section 50 of the PAIA (the commencement of Part 3, Chapter 1, Section 50), as follows:

(1) A requester must be given access to any record of a private body if-
(a) that record is required for the exercise or protection of any rights:
(b) that person complies with the procedural requirements in the Act relating to a request for information to any record; and
(c) access to that record is not refused in terms of any ground for refusal contemplated in Chapter 4 of this Part.
(2) In addition to the requirements referred to in subsection (1), when a public body, referred to in paragraph (a) or (b) (i) of the definition of "public body" in section 1, requests access to a record of a private body for the exercise or protection of any rights, other than its rights, it may be acting in the public interest.
(3) A request contemplated in subsection (1) includes a request for access to a record cont0000000aining personal information about the requester or the person on whose behalf the request is made.

Chapter 4 of Part 3 of the PAIA sets out all the reasons (and the related subjects) why a private body may REFUSE access to information requested.
