Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 1991 gives you a legal right to access documents held by the South Australian government. There are some restrictions to protect the proper administration of government and to protect the rights of third parties.

The Act allows you to request:

  • access to documents from a state government agency, local council or university
  • changes to documents about you which are incomplete, incorrect, out-of-date or misleading
  • a review of a decision made by a state government  agency, local council or university.

Making an FOI application

If you want access to South Australian State Emergency Services (SA SES) information send us an FOI application.

Visit the State Records website to:

  • download an FOI application form
  • find out how much your application will cost (an application for amendment of personal records is free of charge)
  • see time frames for the application process.
