Freedom of information
The Freedom of Information Act 1982 gives you the right to:
access copies of certain documents that the AAT holds
ask us to change certain information the AAT holds about you, and
seek review of a decision the AAT makes not to let you access a document or not to change your personal record.
You can get certain information, including personal information the AAT holds about you, without making a formal request under the Freedom of Information Act. Parties to an application can generally access information from the case file for the application, except where the information is confidential. To access case information you should contact the District Registrar at the registry that dealt with the application. Contact details for each registry are here.
AAT decisions which have been published can be accessed free of charge through the AustLII website.
The AAT also publishes information under the Information Publication Scheme and Freedom of Information (FOI) disclosure log. You should check those pages to see if what you are seeking is already available.
If you want to ask the AAT for access to documents or to change your personal records under the Freedom of Information Act, please see the following page:
The Freedom of Information Act also requires the AAT to pro-actively publish information under the Information Publication Scheme. For more information about the Information Publication Scheme, please see:
The Freedom of Information Act also requires the AAT to publish certain information that has been released in response to freedom of information requests. The AAT publishes that information in its FOI disclosure log on the following page:
