Access to Information

7 April 2014

Your right to information under the Government Information Public Access (GIPA) Act 2009

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 Information and Privacy Commission (IPC) website at
