The Department of the Premier and Cabinet Circular 45 – Disclosure Logs for Non-Personal Information Released through FOI (PC045) describes the requirements for state government agencies to publish non-personal information that has been released under the Freedom of Information Act 1991 (FOI Act) to their websites.
The FOI application information required to be made available by agencies includes a summary of the application details and documents that have already been disclosed to an FOI applicant that:
- are not related to the personal affairs of an individual; and
- could not be claimed as exempt documents/material pursuant to Schedule 1 of the FOI Act, when being publicly released; and
- could not be considered defamatory or a breach of confidentiality or reasonably be anticipated to cause harm to a person.
The information sheet below has been developed to answer agency queries in relation to the practical implementation of PC045.
