Links to AustLII

This website includes links to individual provisions of the FOI Act and FOI Regulations sourced from the Australasian Legal Information Institute (AustLII).  The OIC website links to the AustLII extracts because the AustLII website allows us to link to individual provisions in legislation, which we believe will assist the user. These links are not to the official or authorised version of the FOI Act or FOI Regulations.  The only authorised version is the hardcopy (printed) version published under the authority of the Government Printer, available from the State Law Publisher.  For more information see AustLII WA legislation information.
