Right to Information

On 1 July 2009 the Right to Information Act 2009 and the Information Privacy Act 2009, replaced the Freedom of Information Act 1992.

The Right to Information is the Queensland Government's approach to giving the community greater access to information.

The Right to Information aims to:

  • make more information available
  • provide equal access to information across all sectors of the community
  • provide appropriate protection for individuals' privacy.

The Queensland Government has made a commitment to provide access to information held by the Government, unless on balance it is contrary to the public interest to provide that information.

The Commission will make as much information available as possible through its Publication Scheme, Disclosure log and administrative access. Where practical, this information will be accessible on our website. Where we are not able to make information available on the website, or if you do not wish to access information on the website, we will advise you how the information can be accessed, and any applicable charges. Documents are available in an alternative format, if requested.

General information is also available on the Queensland Government's Right to Information page.
