How to request access to information
Under the Right to Information Act 2009 (RTI Act) you can apply to access information held by the CMC. However, there are limitations to what information you can access.
Under the Information Privacy Act 2009 (IP Act) you can apply:
- for access to documents containing your personal information
- to have information about you amended if you believe it is inaccurate, incomplete, out-of-date or misleading. However, please contact us before making a formal application for an amendment, as in many cases, this can be done informally.
You do not need to know which of these Acts is relevant to your circumstances before you apply. We will determine this when we receive your application, and will advise you accordingly.

There is no fee or processing charge to apply to access or amend information under the Information Privacy Act.
However, a fee may be payable to access the information. This must be paid before access is granted.
