Right to Information

Right to Information is the 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 the Government, unless on balance it is contrary to the public interest to provide that information. 

Legislation replacing the Freedom of Information Act 1992 came into effect on 1 July 2009, namely;

Right to Information aims to make more information available, provide equal access to information across all sectors of the community, and provide appropriate protection for individuals' privacy.

Further information is available in the University's Access to and Amendment of UQ Documents Procedures.  Information concerning the Whole of Government policy and the new legislation, including application forms, is available from www.rti.qld.gov.au.
