Freedom of information disclosure log

For: Claimants Employers and managers Service providers Advocates Information seekers

As an Australian Government agency, Comcare must publish certain information about freedom of information requests in a disclosure log.

The disclosure log explained

We must publish information about freedom of information requests within 10 working days of the applicant receiving access to the document, in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act).

The disclosure log does not include:

  • personal information about a person, if publication of that information is unreasonable
  • information about the business, commercial, financial or professional affairs of a person, if publication of that information would be unreasonable
  • other information covered by a determination of the Australian Information Commissioner, if publication of that information would be unreasonable
  • information that is not reasonably practical to publish because we need to make extensive modifications to delete information we cannot publish
  • information removed under section 22(1)(a)(ii) of the FOI Act as it is outside the scope of the request.

We remove and archive items in the disclosure log 12 months after they are published, unless a listing has long-term public value.
