The Office of the Information Commissioner seeks to publish up-to-date and accurate material on its website. The information on this website is not a substitute for independent professional advice. The Office of the Information Commissioner does not warrant that all information is correct or applicable to your individual circumstances and disclaims responsibility for any reliance on information without independent professional advice.
Despite our best efforts, we make no warranty that this website is free of infection by computer viruses or other contamination. We recommend that you use appropriate and up-to-date firewall and anti-virus software to protect your computer systems.
The reprints used for the Office of the Information Commissioner’s annotated versions of the Freedom of Information Act 1992 (Qld), RTI Act and IP Act (annotated legislation) are sourced from, and used with the permission of, the Office of The Parliamentary Counsel. Please be aware that the Office of The Parliamentary Counsel specifies that these online reprints are not authorised copies.
The annotated legislation deals with issues in a general way and is not legal advice. The Office of the Information Commissioner carefully considers the specific circumstances arising in each external review. Additional factors, which are not detailed in the annotations, may be relevant in specific circumstances.
Please note: the Office of the Information Commissioner developed the annotated legislation for use by its staff as part of the office’s commitment to proactively managing its knowledge resources. We consider it a valuable resource and have therefore decided, in the interests of openness and transparency, to make it available for others to use.
Guidelines published on the Office of the Information Commissioner website are introductory only, and deal with issues in a general way. They are not legal advice and additional factors may be relevant in your specific circumstances. For detailed guidance legal advice should be sought.
