Cancer Australia is required by the Freedom of Information Act 1982 s11C to publish a register (disclosure log) on its website. The disclosure log will list information which has been released in response to an FOI access request. Cancer Australia must comply within 10 working days after the day the FOI applicant is given access to the document.

No documents have been released under FOI by Cancer Australia since 1 May 2011.

The disclosure log requirement does not apply to:

  • personal information about any person if publication of that information would be ‘unreasonable’.
  • information about the business, commercial, financial or professional affairs of any person if publication of that information would be ‘unreasonable’.
  • other information covered by a determination made by the Australian Information Commissioner if publication of that information would be ‘unreasonable’.
  • any information if it is not reasonably practicable to publish the information because of the extent of modifications that would need to be made to delete the information listed in the above dot points.

A charge may be imposed to reimburse Cancer Australia for the cost incurred in copying or reproducing the information or sending it to an applicant. There will be no charge for the time spent by Cancer Australia in processing the FOI request that led to this information being made available. Applicants will be notified if any charge is payable and will be required to pay the charge before the information is provided.

There may be documents in the disclosure log which will not be available in html format.
