Freedom of Information

The ACT Freedom of Information Act 2016 gives individuals the legal right to:

  • access government information unless access to the information would, on balance, be contrary to the public interest;
  • ask for personal information to be changed if it is incomplete, out-of-date, incorrect or misleading; and
  • appeal a decision about access to a document, or a decision in relation to a request to amend or annotate a personal record.

Disclosure Log

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2016 an agency is required to have a disclosure log listing Freedom of Information requests received. Details of requests for personal information are not required to be reported under the act and therefore are not provided here.
