Celebrating 10 years of RTI and privacy
On 1 July 2019, Queensland marked 10 years since the introduction of the Right to Information (RTI) and Information Privacy (IP) Acts.
This legislation was designed to provide Queenslanders with easy to access, timely and reliable information, while also ensuring safeguards for your personal information.
Over the past 10 years Queensland has adopted the “push model” where information is released proactively, unless there is a good reason not to, while protecting and respecting personal information.
It also helps to build trust and more open, transparent and accountable government agencies, hospitals, health services, councils and universities.
The 10th anniversary celebrations are being marked throughout 2019 with events such as:
- Privacy Awareness Week (12-18 May)
- the Solomon Lecture (28 August)
- Right to Information Day (28 September).
