About Right to Information

From 1 July 2009, the Right to Information Act 2009 replaced the Freedom of Information Act 1992 and is part of a broader “push” model of greater proactive and routine release of information.

The RTI Act provides a right of access to government information unless, on balance, it is contrary to the public interest to release the information.
