Right to Information

Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 No 52

On 1 July 2010, the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 replaced the Freedom of Information Act 1989 (NSW).

The new law:

  • creates new rights to information that are designed to meet community expectations of more open and transparent government
  • encourages government agencies to proactively release government information

You can find out more about your right to information and new ways to access NSW government information on the Office of the Information Commissioner (OIC) website at www.oic.nsw.gov.au
