Internal reviews

In most cases, a person denied access may apply for review. The first stage in the review process is an internal review by the principal officer of the agency concerned [s 54B]. The application must be lodged within 30 days of the applicant receiving the decision.

If the internal review is not successful the applicant has a right to seek a review with the Information Commissioner [Freedom of Information Act 1982 (Cth) ss 54L, 54M].
