Right to information

The Right to Information Act 2009 (RTI Act) (PDF) and the Information Privacy Act 2009 (IP Act) (PDF) 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 right to information gives you the right to access and amend information held by public sector agencies in Queensland unless there is a good reason for it not to be provided. You have a right to access your personal information held by the government under the Information Privacy Act 2009. 

This legislation replaces the former Freedom of Information Act 1992.

Further information about Whole of Government policy and the relevant legislation is available from The Right to Information page
