The purpose of the Promotion of Access to Information Act is to give effect to the constitutional right of access to any information held by the state, as well as information held by another person that is required for the exercise or protection of any right.

The motivation for giving effect of the right to access to information is to foster a culture of transparency and accountability both in public and private bodies and to promote a society in which the people of South Africa
have effective access to information to enable them to more fully exercise and protect all their rights.
