This page is about accessing information that the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC) holds.
We make a range of information available for public access. You can formally request access under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) to documents we hold. Alternately, we can give you certain information if you request it through the administrative access scheme, as outlined below.
The OAIC also has a regulatory function in regards to the Information Publication Scheme (IPS), freedom of information (FOI) and FOI disclosure logs.
