The Freedom of Information Act 1991 (FOI Act) applies to all South Australian Government agencies unless exempted by regulation in respect of functions or classes of information.

The FOI Act does not apply to information obtained and held by CTP Insurers.

Access to information

Under the FOI Act, you have a legal right to request access to documents held by the Regulator subject to the below exemptions.

FOI exemptions

The Regulator’s obligations under the FOI Act have been varied by the FOI Exempt Agency Regulations, published in the Government Gazette effective from 16 February 2017.

This means the Regulator does not release:

  • Information relating to a claim or action under Part 4 of the Motor Vehicles Act 1959
  • Information gained under Part 3 of the Compulsory Third Party Insurance Regulation Act 2016 that is confidential information within the meaning of section 17(1) of that Act.

Freedom of Information Proactive Disclosure

The Regulator is required to publish all non-personal information released to applicants under the Freedom of Information Act 1991 (FOI Act).  Since the CTP Regulator was established on 1 July 2016, it has not received any applications.
