Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 1991 gives members of the public a legally enforceable right to access information held by the South Australian Government, subject to certain conditions.

The Act extends as far as possible the rights of the public to access documents held by the government, and to ensure that records held by government concerning the personal affairs of members of the public are not incomplete, incorrect, out of date or misleading. The Act encourages disclosure of information to the public, subject to such restrictions within the Act as are necessary to protect legitimate agency, public and private interests.
