ICO Decision 17 2022 Summary

“The Information Commissioner found that the Department did not issue an internal review decision to the Applicant within the 6-week timeline set out in the PATI Act. However, during the Information Commissioner’s independent review, the Department issued an internal review decision for the PATI request.
