The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission is established under the Australian Crime Commission Act 2002 (Cwlth) (ACC Act). The agency was formerly known as the Australian Crime Commission, and is still known by that name for legal purposes.
The Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act) was created to give community access to information hosted by Australian Government ministers and most agencies.
To find out how to make a FOI request to the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission go to the Freedom of information process page.
The Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission recognises that public sector information is a national resource managed for public purposes.
The disclosure log lists information that has been released in response to FOI access requests.
Part 2 of the FOI Act establishes an Information Publication Scheme (IPS) for Australian Government agencies subject to the FOI Act.
To the extent permitted by legislation, the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission will promote a culture of appropriate proactive disclosure similar to that required by the IPS.
