The National Native Title Tribunal has certain statutory obligations under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act). Upon receipt of a request under the FOI Act, the Tribunal may:
- provide access to documents (as defined in the FOI Act) in possession of the Tribunal, whether created in or received by the Tribunal
- protect individual privacy, by allowing a person to have corrected any incomplete, incorrect or dated personal information held by the Tribunal (for example, a personʹs personnel records)
The President of the Tribunal (or a person authorised by him) will make decisions about FOI applications. Some documents may be exempt from disclosure under the FOI Act. This is also a matter for the President or authorised officers to decide.
