Key published decisions applying section 43 RTI Act

Bourne and Queensland Building and Construction Commission [2014] QICmr 18 (9 May 2014)

Vanbrogue Pty Ltd and Department of Natural Resources and Mines (Unreported, Queensland Information Commissioner, 17 December 2012)

This decision applies section 43(3)(d)(ii) of the RTI Act which allows an agency to refuse to deal with a later application if the agency’s decision on the first application has been the subject of a completed review.  In particular, the decision considers whether sufficiency of search issues raised by the applicant constituted a ‘reasonable basis’ for again seeking access to the documents.
