Form of request:
- The requester must use the prescribed form to make the request for access to a record.
This must be made to the head of the private body. This request must be made to
the address, fax number or electronic mail address of the body concerned.
- The requester must provide sufficient detail on the request form to enable the head
of the private body to identify the record and the requester. The requester should
also indicate which form of access is required. The requester should also indicate
if any other manner is to be used to inform the requester and state the necessary
particulars to be so informed.
- The requester must identify the right that is sought to be exercised or to be protected
and provide an explanation of why the requested record is required for the exercise
or protection of that right.
- If a request is made on behalf of another person, the requester must then submit
proof of the capacity in which the requester is making the request to the satisfaction
of the head of the private body.
A requester who seeks access to a record containing personal information about that
requester is not required to pay the request fee. Every other requester, who is
not a personal requester, must pay the required request fee:
- The head of the private body must notify the requester (other than a personal requester)
by notice, requiring the requester to pay the prescribed fee (if any) before further
processing the request.
- The fee that the requester must pay to a private body is R50. The requester may
lodge an application to the court against the tender or payment of the request fee.
- After the head of the private body has made a decision on the request, the requester
must be notified in the required form.
- If the request is granted then a further access fee must be paid for the search,
reproduction, preparation and for any time that has exceeded the prescribed hours
to search and prepare the record for disclosure.
