The disclosure log list documents that have been disclosed by the Courts Administration Authority (CAA) in response to a request for access to non-personal information pursuant to the FOI Act that were received post 1 October 2017.

In accordance with this policy, CAA is required to make available on its website documents that have been disclosed to an FOI applicant that:

  • are not related to the personal affairs of an individual;
  • could not be claimed as exempt documents/material pursuant to Schedule 1 of the FOI Act when being publicly released;
