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
ACC needs an extra 8 working days until 5 December 2016 to process your request
due to the impact of the North Canterbury earthquake. Government Services has
resumed functions as of 24 November 2016, after ACC’s Head Office was reopened.
The inability to access the building until this time has impacted on Government
Services’ capability to gather and assess information for release under the Official
Information Act 1982 (the Act) and to consult.
ACC wil do all it can to respond to your request before the new 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.
If you are stil not happy, you may make a complaint to the Office of the Ombudsman.
