Open Access Information

Your right to information

On 1 July 2010 new right to information legislation came into effect, replacing the former freedom of information law.

The new law:

  • creates new rights to information that are designed to meet community expectations of more open and transparent government
  • encourages government agencies to proactively release government information.

You can find out more about your right to information and new ways to access NSW government information on the Office of the Information Commissioner (OIC) website at
