Masterclass: Third party consultation

We are delivering a face-to-face masterclass on consulting with a relevant third party. This session will explore all aspects of the formal consultation process and explain when, why and how to consult with third parties. There will be a focus on unpacking the legislative requirements of section 37 of the Right to Information Act, applying that to real life examples and working in small groups to apply your learnings to different scenarios.

Questions, discussion and shared learning is encouraged.

Target audience: New and experienced RTI/IP decision makers who are required to undertake formal consultations are part of processing access applications under the Right to Information Act 2009 (Qld) and Chapter 3 of the Information Privacy Act 2009 (Qld).

Learning objectives:

  • Identify when you need to consult with a relevant third party
  • Learn how to undertake an effective third party consultation
  • Awareness of the grounds on which a third party can object, and the practical effect of an objection
  • Understand your responsibilities and limitations if you are consulted

Facilitators: Experienced officers from the OIC’s Information & Assistance and External Review teams will conduct the workshop.

When: 9:30am to 11:30am, Tuesday, 10 May 2022.
