Fasset's Proatia Manual

Fasset has in place a Proatia Manual in terms of Section 14 of the Promotion of Access to Information Act, 2000 (Act No. 2 of 2000) ("the Act"). The Act gives effect to the provisions of Section 32 of the Constitution which provides for the right of access to information held by the State and to information held by another person that is required for the exercise and / or protection of any right. The provision of any information in addition to that specifically required in terms of Section 14 of the Act does not create any contractual right or entitlement to receive such information, other than in terms of the Act.

Fasset’s Fraud Prevention Plan is implemented as a means of understanding and managing our fraud risks. A key element of this plan is Fasset's declaration of zero tolerance towards crime.
