Data Element (this item)


Guide for use:

Information is collected up to three times:

  • Once for a person lodging an application for information,
    Once for person lodging a veto within the reporting period and,
    Once for vetoes in place at 30th June.

Data are collected on applications for information from adult applicants (aged 18 years and over) who have gone through a screening process and have been identified as having an entitlement to receive information.

Data are collected on the lodgement of vetoes and vetoes in place at 30 June for adults (aged 18 years and over). If legislation or policy allows an individual to lodge more than one contact or more than one identifying information veto (for example to veto the release of information to certain people but not to others), this should only be recorded as one contact veto or one information veto.
