If you do not consent to your submission being treated as a public document, you should mark it as confidential, specifically identify those parts which you feel need to be kept private, and include an explanation. The department may request that a non-confidential summary of the material is also given. It is important to note that even if your submission is treated as confidential by the department, it may still be disclosed under the Freedom of Information Act 1992 or any other applicable written law.

The department reserves the right before publishing a submission to delete any content that could be regarded as racially vilifying, derogatory or defamatory to an individual or an organisation.
