Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 1992, which came into effect on 1 November 1993, created a general right of access to documents held by State and local government agencies.

The Act requires agencies to make available details about the kind of information they hold and enables persons to ensure that personal information held by government agencies about them is "accurate, complete, up to date and not misleading".
