FOI determinations

The Australian Information Commissioner can make determinations under the FOI Act to exempt documents from publication either through the Information Publication Scheme (IPS) or the FOI Disclosure Log.

The ComLaw website contains authoritative versions of all legislative instruments enabled by the FOI Act, including FOI determinations.

For information on the OAIC’s process in considering applications and developing determinations, please see the IPS and Disclosure Log Determinations Policy and Procedure, in the Agency Resources section of this website.
