Publication scheme

Our publication scheme describes and categorises information routinely available from the Queensland Family and Child Commission (QFCC). It has been developed to give the community greater access to information held by government.

The purpose of the publication scheme is to make the maximum amount of information available at minimum cost and inconvenience to the public. Material which is published and accessed on this will be provided free of charge.

Please note that we will not include information that:

  • is prohibited by law from disclosure or is exempt under the RTI Act
  • in a draft form, or
  • in a form that cannot be easily accessed.
