PAIA Exemptions

Section 51 PAIA (which was profoundly amended by POPIA) requires all private companies to make a “Manual” available on their website, at the office and to anyone who requests it.

The exemption from this obligation expired on 31 December 2021. As of 1 January 2022, all public and private bodies must have their PAIA Manual available at their principal place of business or on their web site.
