2011-12 Annual Report - Appendix 2: Information Publication Scheme

Appendix 2 - Information Publication Scheme

Agencies subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) are required to publish information to the public as part of the Information Publication Scheme (IPS). This requirement is in Part II of the FOI Act and has replaced the former requirement to publish a section 8 statement in an annual report. Each agency must display on its website a plan showing what information it publishes in accordance with the IPS requirements.

ARPANSA as an Australian Government agency is subject to the FOI Act and is required to comply with the IPS provisions. ARPANSA has developed an agency plan in accordance with the IPS describing ARPANSA's compliance with the IPS provisions as required by s 8(1) of the FOI Act. The plan can be accessed at www.arpansa.gov.au/ips.cfm.

Feedback on this plan can be provided by contacting the FOI Coordinator at email: foiatarpansa.gov.au or by mailing to:
