Promotion of Access to Information Act

The Promotion of Access to Information Act, 2000 ('PAIA') gives persons the right to access information that is required to exercise or protect their rights. In terms of PAIA, before access to information requested by persons is granted, certain requirements have to be met. PAIA also requires private bodies such as Prestige Bulletin to compile a manual, designed to assist persons who want to exercise their right to access information. 

In general, you can visit our website without having to divulge any personal information about yourself. However, while using this website you may provide information about yourself or it may be collected by Prestige Bulletin. Access to your personal information held by Prestige Bulletin may also be requested by you or third parties. PAIA regulates and sets out the procedure for such a request and under what circumstances such access may be refused.

The PAIA manual and the prescribed forms for access to this information, are available below.
