What is the right to information?

The Right to Information is the Queensland Government's approach to giving the community greater access to information.

The Queensland Government has made a commitment to provide access to information held by the Government, unless on balance it is contrary to the public interest to provide that information.

New legislation replacing the Freedom of Information Act 1992 came into effect on 1 July 2009, namely:

The Right to Information aims to make more information available, provide equal access to information across all sectors of the community, and provide appropriate protection for individuals' privacy.

The Information Privacy legislation aims to regulate public sector handling of the personal information requested, collected, used and disclosed as part of its business functions.

The legislation defines personal information as information or as an opinion, including:

DETE Information Privacy Obligations has more information about the personal information the department collects, why it's collected and how it will be used.
