Access To Information Act 2 of 2000

Should general information pertinent to the Company be required in terms of the Promotion of Access to Information Act 2 of 2000, a manual is available upon request via the following e-mail address:

However, should any other specific information be required, the requester will have to submit a separate request and will have to prove that the information requested is required in order to exercise or protect his/her fundamental human rights as set out in the Constitution 1996. The costs of such request and of the supply of such information shall be borne by the requester.

Any request for information must:
  • Identify the record(s) requested
  • Identify the requester
  • Specify a postal address or fax number of the requester within the Republic of South Africa
  • Identify the right the requester is seeking to exercise or protect and provide an explanation of why the information requested is required for exercise or protection of such right
  • State the manner in which the requester wishes to be informed of the decision on the request, if other than or in addition to a written reply
  • Indicate which form of access is required
  • Submit proof of the capacity in which the requester is making the request to the reasonable satisfaction of the Directors of Iplex if the request is being made on behalf of a person

The requester shall be obliged to pay the prescribed request fee before Iplex will process a request.

It should be noted that Section 36 of the Constitution limits personal rights to the extent that it is reasonable and justifiable taking into consideration:
  • The nature of the right
  • The importance of the purpose of the limitation
  • The nature and extent of the limitation
  • The relation between the limitation and its purpose
  • Less restrictive means to achieve the purpose

and the balancing of competing interests of third parties and the company as a juristic entity.
