COVID-19 impact on FOI processing

The ACCC has activated its Business Continuity Plan due to COVID-19 and most staff are working remotely. We expect delays with processing FOI requests during this time. All potential FOI applicants are encouraged to seek guidance from the FOI team via foi@accc.gov.au prior to submitting an FOI request. We thank you for your patience and co-operation.


This website publishes information as required by the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act). 

The ACCC is required to keep information provided under s.8(2) accurate, up to date and complete.  In order to comply with this obligation, the ACCC will review the information on an annual basis.

Information provided under the ACCC disclosure log is published in accordance with s.11C of the FOI Act.  This log is a historical record of certain documents that have been released under the FOI Act to specific applicants.  The ACCC does not warrant or guarantee the accuracy, completeness or currency of the information contained on the log, including copies of documents released, because:

  1. the information is necessarily limited to the scope of the relevant FOI application, as determined by the FOI applicant,
  2. certain documents that are released to FOI applicants may nevertheless be excluded from the log, for example where they contain personal or business information, and
  3. documents within the scope of the FOI request that are not released to the FOI applicant are not included in the disclosure log.

The ACCC accepts no responsibility for the completeness or accuracy of any of this information and makes no representations about its suitability for any purpose.
