Dear Acclaim Otago
Official Information Act Request
Thank you for your email of 26 October 2016 requesting the following information:
ACC’s 2016 Annual Report stated “ACC accepted 1,933,629 new claims”.
How many of those 1,933,629 new claims were from overseas visitors to New
Because of the nature of your request, ACC is treating it as a request for information
under the Official Information Act 1982.
ACC’s Head Office is closed until further notice due to the impact of the North
Canterbury earthquake. This inability to access the building has impacted on
Government Services’ capability to gather and assess information for release, and to
conduct necessary consultation.
ACC wil do all it can to respond to your request as soon as possible, and will notify
you if an extension is required before the due date.
Please contact me on Government [email address] if you would like to talk
about this letter. I wil be happy to answer any questions or, if you have any
concerns, work with you to resolve these.
