Right to Information Disclosure Log

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Certain information released in response to Right to Information requests will be published online within 48 hours of being released to the applicant.

This approach makes information released to an applicant available to a wider audience and increases Government 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 likely.
  • their identity will not be published. The category of the applicant will be published, i.e. Member of Parliament, media representative, a private individual.
  • a summary of the application will be published. This gives context to the nature of the released information.
  • only information that is 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  • information of a commercial or confidential nature will not be published.
If you are seeking information published on the Right to Information Disclosure Log in 2015-16 or 2016-2017, please ​email right2info@nre.tas.gov.au​.
