Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 1991 (the FOI Act) provides members of the public a legally enforceable right of access (subject to certain restrictions) to documents held by government.

The purpose of the FOI Act is to promote openness in government and accountability of Ministers of the Crown and other government agencies and thereby to enhance respect for the law and further the good government of the State; and to facilitate more effective participation by members of the public in the processes involved in the making and administration of laws and policies.


FOI applications on Dog and Cat Management Board activities should be made via the Department for Environment and Water. All fees and information can be found provided on their website.
