Section 54E(2)(a)(i) – Refusal to amend – whether information inaccurate, incomplete, out-of-date or misleadng

The applicant sought review of a decision of Queensland Corrective Services (QCS) to refuse to amend his incident history in a QCS database on the basis that the incidents recorded in his incident history did not come within the definition of the term ‘incident’, as defined in the Corrective Services Act 2006 (Qld).

Assistant Commissioner Gittins found that QCS had correctly exercised its discretion to refuse to amend the applicant’s incident history because the incidents were recorded in accordance with the QCS Incident Reporting Procedure and the information was not inaccurate, incomplete, out-of-date or misleading.
