The objects of the Act are about improving democratic government in Tasmania by giving members of the public a right to obtain information held by public authorities and the operations of Government.
A person has a legally enforceable right to be provided, in accordance with the Right to Information Act, with official information in the possession of the Department of Premier and Cabinet unless the information is exempt information.
The Act sets out the processes for the release of information, where requests may be refused and how to seek a review of a decision by a public authority about the release of information.
The Right to Information Act recognises that some information held by a public authority should not be released. The types of information that may be withheld from release include:
* These exemptions are subject to a public interest test. The matters which must be considered in deciding whether disclosure of information is contrary to the public interest are set out in Schedule 1 of the Right to Information Act. The matters that are irrelevant in deciding if the disclosure of the information is contrary to the public interest are specified in Schedule 2 of the Right to Information Act.
The Department of Premier and Cabinet has a policy which relates to the process of disclosing information in accordance with the Right to Information Act 2009.
