Right to Information and Privacy

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

These laws:

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