Section 47 - Notice to be added to the record
Extract of legislation
Section 47 requires an agency or Minister to add a notation to a record where a claimant provides a notice to do so under section 46.
Section 47 also helps to ensure other persons to whom the agency or Minister discloses the notated information to, are aware of the notation.
If the agency or Minister discloses any information to which the notation relates to another person (including another agency or Minister), then the agency or Minister must provide that other person with a statement:
- stating that the claimant claims the relevant information is incomplete, incorrect, out of date or misleading; and
- outlining the particulars of the notation.
In the statement, the agency or Minister may also explain their reasons for not amending the relevant information in the record.
