5.3.1 Form of Request
The requester must use the prescribed form ("Form C") to make the request for access to a record.
CCII Systems will make Form C available on request. Form C may also be downloaded from our website.
Form C must be completed in full and returned to CCII Systems (Pty) Ltd together with payment of the request fee. A request which does not comply with the formalities required by the Act will be forwarded back to the requester with advice on the necessary steps for compliance.
5.3.2 Request Fees
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 of R50,00.
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.
CCII Systems will, within 30 days of receipt of the request, decide whether to grant or decline the request. The 30 day period may be extended for a further period of 30 days if CCII Systems requires additional time to gather the requested information. The requester will be given notice if an extension is needed.
CCII Systems will notify the requester in writing in respect of the decision that is made.
The Act makes no provision for an internal appeal structure in respect of private bodies. A requester must therefore approach a court of law within the prescribed period.
