Freedom of Information Disclosure Statement

Publicly available information released following an FOI access request

The Reserve Bank of Australia is required under section 11C of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 to publish a disclosure log on its website. The disclosure log lists information that has been released in response to an FOI access request. This requirement has applied 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.

The information listed in our disclosure log has been released by the Reserve Bank under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 and is available for public access. On the same page as our Disclosure Log we also provide details of information published voluntarily over the period 1 November 2010 to 31 April 2011, before the disclosure log requirements took effect on 1 May 2011.

A link is provided if the information can be downloaded from this website or another website.

Information that has been released to an applicant in response to an FOI access request but is not available on our website may be obtained on request. A charge may be imposed to reimburse the Reserve Bank for the cost incurred in copying or reproducing the information and/or sending it to you. However, there will be no other charge. You will be notified if any copying, reproduction or postage/delivery charge is payable and required to pay the charge before the information is provided.

There may be documents in the disclosure log that are currently not available in HTML format. If you are unable to read the format provided, please contact the Secretary of the Reserve Bank via the methods listed below. We will try to meet all reasonable requests for an alternate format of the document in a timely manner and at the lowest reasonable cost to you.
