Right to Information Disclosure Log
procedures for disclosing information released in response to Right to
Information Act 2009 requests in Tasmania were announced on Tuesday 9
Certain information released in
response to Right to Information requests will be published online
within 48 hours of being released to the applicant. This only applies to
applications received after 9 June 2015.
The new approach makes
information released to an applicant available to a wider audience and
increases Government transparency and accountability.
Applicants should note that:
they seek and are granted a waiver of the application fee on the basis
of general public interest, and it is determined that the information is
in the broader public interest, publication of the released information
- their identity will not be published. The category
of applicant will be published, i.e. Member of Parliament, media
representative, private individual.
- a summary of the application will be published. This gives context to the nature of the released information.
information that is considered to be in the broader public interest
will be published. No personal information will be published.
- information of a commercial or confidential nature will not be published.
Detailed policies reflecting this change will soon be available.
