Disclosure Log

The Grains Research and Development Corporation is required by the Freedom of Information Act 1982 s 11C 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 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 described in this register has been released by the GRDC under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 and is available for public access, generally for 12 months. Some information may remain on the disclosure log for longer than 12 months if it remains in the public interest.

Information will be published on the disclosure log between one and 10 days after it is released to the FOI applicant.

Information that is not available on a website may be obtained by writing to the GRDC. A charge may be imposed to reimburse the GRDC 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 GRDC in processing the FOI request that led to this information being made available. You will be notified if any charge is payable and required to pay the charge before the information is provided.
