The majority of the documents held by the Appeals Tribunal Secretariat are exempt under section 23(1) of the FOI Law, as releasing applications, minutes and outcomes of meetings and other reports would amount to an unreasonable disclosure of personal information. Individuals have a statutory right under the FOI Law to view their own personal information held by public authorities, and such information may be released to a third party if there is overriding public interest in the disclosure, but FOI requests must be made for these records in all cases and the Information Manager will make a decision on each application.
