Consulting with a relevant third party

The consulting with a relevant third party video presentation is designed for agency officers who make decisions under the Right to Information Act 2009 (Qld) and Chapter 3 of the Information Privacy Act 2009 (Qld).

The presentation was developed to support the consulting with a relevant third party webinar however, it's not necessary to have participated in the webinar prior to viewing the presentation. Participants will explore the formal consultation process when an agency is considering the release of a document which contains information that may be of concern to a third party the agency must obtain the views of the third party before making a decision.

The presentation draws on agency and OIC experience, and guidance provided in the annotated legislation, guidelines and OIC external review decisions.

It is facilitated by a senior OIC officer with experience in interpreting and applying the legislation, and access application decision-making.
