Public Access to Information Act

Sharing is caring!

Hi all, you’ve probably heard about PAIA, so what is it and what must you do?

From the South African Human Resources Council Website:

All South African businesses must comply with PAIA – The Public’s Access to Information Act. PAIA legislation creates the framework to the right to access information enshrined in section 32 of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, Act 108 of 1996. The purpose of this legislation is to promote a culture of transparency, accountability and good governance both in the private and public sectors. Therefore, the Act places specific compliance requirements on both state institutions and private sector. See here for more information:
