Right to Information

Right to Information is the Queensland Government's approach to giving the community greater access to information. We are committed to provide access to information held by the government, unless on balance it is contrary to the public interest to provide that information.

The Right to Information Act 2009 and Information Privacy Act 2009 came into effect on 1 July 2009, replacing the Freedom of Information Act 1992.

Right to Information reforms aim to make more information available, provide equal access to information across all sectors of the community, and provide appropriate protection for individuals' privacy.

Frequently asked questions

The RTI Act requires agencies to publish a disclosure log on their website to include details of all valid RTI applications received from 22 February 2013. The disclosure log lists the scopes of valid RTI applications, and provides access to information which has been released in response to completed RTI access requests.

  • If agencies and ministers decide to give access to a document that does not contain the personal information of the applicant, and the applicant accesses the document within the access period (40 business days), agencies and ministers must include in the disclosure log a copy of the document, the name of the applicant and if access to the document was sought for the benefit or use by an entity other than the applicant, the name of the other entity. These publication requirements are subject to the caveats explained below.

    If the applicant does not access the document within the access period, the details of the document and information about the way in which the document may be accessed will be included in the disclosure log.

  • Please note that documents containing an applicant's personal information will not be published on the disclosure log. The agency will also remove any information (including individuals' names) from the disclosure log that is required under section 78B of the RTI Act, including when:

    • the publication of the information is prevented by law; or
    • the information may be defamatory; or
    • publishing the information would unreasonably invade an individual's privacy or cause substantial harm to an entity; or
    • the information is of a confidential nature communicated in confidence; or
    • the information is protected from disclosure under a contract.

    In some cases, there may be blank pages in a document, due to either removal of information under section 78B, or by redaction through the decision-making process for the original RTI application. Blank pages will not be included in the disclosure log.

  • The documents in this disclosure log are made available in PDF format. Should you require the documents in an alternative format, please contact Right to Information Services and the agency will endeavour to meet all reasonable requests.

  • Documents will be available on the disclosure log for a minimum period of six months from the date they are published, after which time the documents may be removed. They will continue to be available electronically (e.g. on CD or DVD) on request until such time as the original application file is disposed of in accordance with the Public Records Act 2002. Should you require access to removed documents, please contact Right to Information Services.
