Implementation : Applying the Law
Applying the Law
As a first step towards applying the law, governments will need set in place the infrastructure necessary to facilitate information access. This will include establishing codes and procedures within each government department to receive and process applications and appeals, as well as guidance on how to interpret with the exemption clauses under the law. Departments may want to consider issuing guidance notes, procedures manuals and user's guides for public authorities on interpreting and applying different aspects of the law.
