Explanation of Redacted Information (s22) from Notice:

16. Under subsection 22(1) of the FOI Act, irrelevant information has been redacted from Documents 1-14 as it is considered to be outside the scope of your request.

Subsection 22(1): Documents containing information that is irrelevant to the FOI request

17. The effect of subsection 22(1) of the FOI Act is that where the granting of access to a document would disclose information that is not within the scope of the request and it is possible to provide a copy with information deleted, the agency can do so unless it is evident that the applicant does not wish to be provided access to such a copy. A copy of subsection 22(1) is at Attachment B.

18. The relevant documents contain information that does not fall within the scope of your FOI request. Specifically, Documents 1-14 contain information which is not used in the assessment of compliance of therapeutic goods that are listed under section 26A of the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989.

19. I consider that to provide you with full access to the documents would disclose the above information that does not fall within the scope of your FOI request. Accordingly, I have decided that the irrelevant information will be deleted under subsection 22(1) of the FOI Act and a copy of the documents, with the irrelevant information deleted, will be provided to you.
