PROMOTION OF ACCESS TO INFORMATION ACT (Act 2 of 2000)


INTRODUCTION

Section 32 of the Constitution guarantees to everyone the right of access to information held by the state and other persons or institutions. The Promotion of Access to Information Act 2 of 2000 (‘PAIA’) provides the framework and procedures for the exercise of the constitutional right to information. The South African Human Rights Commission (‘SAHRC’) plays a key role in the implementation of PAIA. All pertinent information about PAIA, including access to PAIA itself and regulations made under it, is available on the SAHRC’s website.
 
Maranatha Record Company is fully committed to the implementation of PAIA in a positive and proactive manner in order to ensure that information under its control is available and accessible, and thus to give effect to the letter and spirit of the fundamental right of access to information and of the constitutional principles governing public administration.
 
PAIA applies to all recorded information under the control of Maranatha Record Company, and, if properly applied, will promote transparency, accountability and effective governance at Maranatha Record Company. It goes without saying that Maranatha Record Company will have a large and diverse number of records, some of which are publicly available and some of which are not. PAIA contains an elaborate set of provisions regulating the circumstances under which access to Maranatha Record Company records which are not publicly available must and may be refused.
 
Moreover, Maranatha Record Company already has procedures in place for providing access to many of its records. As the intention of PAIA is to enhance access, not stultify it, Maranatha Record Company is currently working on procedures to ensure that the application of PAIA will achieve this purpose.

INFORMATION OFFICER

In terms of PAIA, the Managing Director of Maranatha Record Company is the Information Officer (IO). In order to give optimal effect to PAIA, the IO may designate Deputy Information Officers (DIOs) in Maranatha Record Company.
