In future requesters will be asked to conduct their own research to establish what information is not in the public domain and refine their requests to that information only. Under the provision of the Act an authority must process a request that is in writing from a named applicant under the terms and conditions of the legislation.  Whilst giving maximum support to individuals genuinely seeking to exercise the right to know information that is not in the public domain, the Commissioner’s general approach will be sympathetic towards authorities where requests can be characterised as being burdensome or considered to be valueless to the greater community and a waste of authority resources to process.
