Information Privacy Act

This website provides information about Information Privacy in Queensland.

The Information Privacy Act 2009 (the IP Act):

  • gives you a right to apply to access and amend your own personal information
  • details the privacy principles public sector agencies must comply with
  • establishes the Privacy Commissioner as a deputy to the Information Commissioner with particular responsibility for Information Privacy in Queensland

From 1 July 2009, the IP Act replaced Queensland’s administrative privacy scheme under Information Standard 42 and Information Standard 42A.

A new complaints mechanism for formal complaints about agency breaches of the privacy principles or other requirements of the IP Act will be available from late 2009.
