Review process

If you are unhappy about a decision you may have the right to seek a review.

The first step is an internal review of the decision. An internal review of the decision must be requested within 20 days of receiving the notice of the decision.  This can be done by writing to:

Principal Officer
Right to Information
Department of State Growth
GPO Box 536
Hobart TAS 7001


In some cases, you may also be able to seek an external review by the Ombudsman:

  1. If we do not get back to you in the timeframe allowed then we may be taken to have refused your application and you are able to make an application for external review to the Ombudsman without applying for an internal review first.
  2. If you have applied for internal review and are unhappy with the internal review decision, then you may apply to the Ombudsman for an external review.

Information on reviews by the Ombudsman can be found on the Office of the Ombudsman's website.
