Disclosure Log - Documents released by Defence

Defence is required by section 11C of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) to publish a disclosure log on its website. The disclosure log lists documents which have been disclosed in response to an FOI access request. This requirement applied from 1 May 2011. The disclosure log complements the Information Publication Scheme required under section 8 of the FOI Act.

In accordance with the requirements of section 11C, agencies are required to publish details of documents released under the FOI Act within ten working days of an applicant being given access to the documents.

Defence will maintain on this website a list of documents released under the FOI Act. This list does not include:

  • personal information or information about the business, commercial, financial or professional affairs of any person if publication of that information would be unreasonable;
  • other information that the Australian Information Commissioner determines is unreasonable to publish; and
  • any information not reasonably practicable to publish because of modifications necessary to delete information covered in the two dot points above.

Defence will also include a copy of the decision made as part of the FOI request (with the applicant's personal information redacted). Defence believes publication of the decision will provide the context for any redactions made to the documents.

If you require access to the documents in an alternative format please contact the FOI Directorate.

Please Note: Due to the scanning process some documents may have a format distortion.
