Freedom of information (FOI)

The Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth) (the FOI Act) gives the Australian community access to information held by the Australian Government, limited only by specific exemptions and exceptions set out in the FOI Act.

The FOI Act achieves this objective by:

  • requiring agencies to publish certain information on a website, and
  • providing a right of access to documents.
