- other information covered by a determination made by the Australian Information Commissioner if publication of that information would be 'unreasonable'
- any information if it is not reasonably practicable to publish the information because of the extent of modifications that would need to be made to delete the information listed in the above dot points.
The information described in this register has been released by the Australian Federal Police under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 and is available for public access.

A charge may be imposed to reimburse the Australian Federal Police for the cost incurred in copying or reproducing the information or sending it to you.

If you are unable to read the format provided please contact the Freedom of Information Contact officer as above.

Section 11C requires the Australian Federal Police to publish certain information released in response to an FOI access request within 10 working days of the decision to release. The Australian Federal Police will publish the information within this legislative timeframe and it is anticipated that technical and resources implications will result in the information being published between 5 and 10 workings days of the information being released.
The Australian Federal Police will generally publish this information for a 12 month period from the date the information is released in response to an FOI access request. The disclosure log will list only those FOI access requests where information has been released and a decision to publish the information has been made (ie the information is not otherwise exempt from publication under s11C provisions outlined above).
