Freedom of Information Disclosure Log

Publicly available information released following an FOI access request

The Australian War Memorial is required by section 11C of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 to publish a disclosure log on its website. The disclosure log lists information which 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 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 described in this register has been released by the Australian War Memorial under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 and is available for public access.

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

Information that is not available on a website may be obtained by writing to GPO Box 345, Canberra City, ACT, 2601, or by email from foi@awm.gov.au 

A charge may be imposed to reimburse the Australian War Memorial for the cost incurred in copying or reproducing the information or sending it to you. There will be no charge for the time spent by the Australian War Memorial in processing the FOI request that led to this information being made available. You will be notified if any charge is payable and be 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 Freedom of Information Contact officer as above. 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.

Section 11C requires the Australian War Memorial to publish certain information released in response to an FOI access request within 10 working days of the decision to release. The Australian War Memorial will publish the information within this legislative timeframe.

The Australian War Memorial will generally publish this information for a 12 month period from the date the information is released in response to an FOI access request. The disclosure log will list only those FOI access requests where information has been released and a decision to publish the information has been made (i.e. the information is not otherwise exempt from publication under s11C provisions outlined above).
