About us

The Office of the Information Commissioner (OIC) is Queensland’s independent statutory body established under the Right to Information Act 2009 (Qld) and the Information Privacy Act 2009 (Qld) to promote access to government-held information, and to protect people’s personal information held by the public sector.

OIC provides information and assistance to support Queensland public sector agencies to comply with the law, reviews agency decisions regarding access and amendment applications, deals with privacy complaints and makes decisions on whether an agency’s privacy obligations can be waived or modified in the public interest.
