The Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth) applies only to Australian Government ministers and most agencies. Other Australian States and Territories, along with many other countries, have equivalent legislation. Some jurisdictions use the term freedom of information (FOI), while others have ‘access to information’ or ‘right to information’ legislation.
