What if you are not satisfied with a decision on your application for access under the Right to Information Act 2009 or the Information Privacy Act 2009?

Under the Right to Information Act 2009 and the Information Privacy Act 2009, you have a right of internal review.

An internal review decision must not be decided by the person who made the original decision, or a person who is less senior than that person. An application for internal review must be made in writing, state address to which notices under the relevant Act may be sent, and be lodged at the following address:

RTI/IP Contact Officer
The Public Trustee
GPO Box 1449
BRISBANE QLD 4001

There is no fee for internal review applications.

Unless a further time is allowed, an application for internal review must be made within 20 business days after the date of the written notice of the decision.

You may also apply to have any decision externally reviewed by the Information Commissioner. It is not necessary to have an internal review before applying for external review.

An application for external review can be lodged with the Office of the Information Commissioner by one of the following methods:
