Right to Information

Right to Information (RTI) is 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 government agencies, unless on balance it is considered to be contrary to the public interest to provide the information.

Visit the whole-of-Government Right to Information and Information Privacy page for more information.

The Review of Queensland's Freedom of Information Act found that a new approach was needed from the Government, putting forward 141 recommendations for reform. The Government agreed, supporting in full or part 139 of the recommendations, and released a response to the Freedom of Information Act review.

The Right to Information reforms aim 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 Act 2009 * and the Information Privacy Act 2009 * replaced the Freedom of Information (FOI) laws and provide appropriate safeguards for the way the public sector handles an individual's personal information.
