CSIRO is required by the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) s 11C to publish a disclosure log on its website.
The disclosure log lists information which has been released in response to an FOI access request.
This requirement has applied since 1 May 2011.
In accordance with the requirements of section 11C, agencies are required to publish details of information released under the FOI Act within 10 working days of an applicant being given access to the documents.
The disclosure log requirement does not apply to:
- personal information about any person if publication of that information would be unreasonable
- information about the business, commercial, financial or professional affairs of any person if publication of that information would be ‘unreasonable’
- other information covered by a determination made by the Australian Information Commissioner if publication of that information would be ‘unreasonable’
- any information if it is not reasonably practicable to publish the information because of the extent of modification that would need to be made to delete the information listed in the above dot points.
Information attached to, or referred to in CSIRO disclosure log will generally be removed after 12 months, unless the information has enduring public value.
