Understanding PAIA – Promotion of Access to Information Act – Calling all Risk, Compliance or Governance Officers

The Promotion of Access to Information Act, No. 2 of 2000 (PAIA) was enacted to give effect to the constitutional right of access to information. In terms of the Constitution and PAIA, all people in South Africa, including non-nationals, can request information from public and private bodies.

Objectives relevant to NPO’s include:
• To promote transparency, accountability and effective governance of all public and private bodies
