Under the Right to Information Act 2009, the Commission will publicly release certain information in response to Right to Information requests. This information will be published on the Commission's website within 48 hours of it being released to the applicant. This approach makes information released to an applicant available to a wider audience and increases transparency and accountability.

Applicants should note that:

  • If 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 is more than probable.
  • The applicant’s identity will not be published. The category of applicant will be published, for example, Member of Parliament, media representative or private individual.
  • A summary of the application will be published to give context to the nature of the released information.
  • Only information 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  • Information of a commercial or confidential nature will not be published.
