Freedom of Information and Information Statement
What is Freedom of Information?
The Freedom of Information Act, 1991 gives you a legally enforceable right of access (subject to certain restrictions) to documents held by government.
The FOI Act allows you to:
- request access to documents in the possession of a State Government agency, Local Council or University
- request the amendment of documents that relate to you which are incomplete, incorrect, out-of-date or misleading
- seek a review of a decision made by a State Government agency, Local Council or University.
It does not apply to private businesses or organisations in South Australia. Separate legislation applies to the Commonwealth government and the governments of the other States and Territories in Australia.
State Records of South Australia has produced a pamphlet outlining the information that can be found in this introduction. The pamphlet is called Your Right to Know - How to use Freedom of Information in South Australia Government agencies.
