Information publishing scheme
AUSTRAC publishes information on our website that meets the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act).
Reforms to the FOI Act in 2010 introduced a new Information Publication Scheme (IPS) for Australian Government agencies. The emphasis is now on proactively publishing information rather than responding to individual requests for access to documents.
As well as publishing the required information on our website, we publish:
Where to find information
To help you find the information that we are required to publish under the IPS, we have provided links to the relevant page, or provided the information on this page.
