Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 1982 (the FOI Act) requires Australian Government agencies to proactively publish certain information and gives the Australian community a right of access to documents held by most agencies, subject to certain exemptions. 

Information Publication Scheme (IPS)

As part of obligations under the FOI Act to proactively publish a range of information, Information Publication Scheme (IPS) plans are available for the Classification Board and Classification Review Board. These plans provide links to a range of online information relating to the Classification Board and Classification Review Board.
