Active Disclosure is where the disclosure of information is voluntary, in response to a request from a person and is not assessed under the Right to Information Act.
Certain information released in response to
Right to Information requests will be published online at the same time or at the latest within 48 hours of being released to the applicant.
This approach makes information released to an applicant available to a wider audience and increases transparency and accountability.
Applicants should note that:
- If they seek and are granted a waiver of the application fee on the basis of general public interest, and it is determined that the information is in the broader public interest, publication of the released information is likely.
- No personal information will be published and so the applicant's identity will not be published. The category of the applicant will be published, i.e. Member of Parliament, media representative, a private individual.
- A summary of the application will be published. This gives context to the nature of the released information.
Information of a commercial or confidential nature will not be published.

Salmon mortality figures; causes* and disposal by lease and the geographic area reported to the EPA by the three main Tasmanian aquaculture companies (Petuna; Tassal and Huon Aquaculture**) from May 2020 to May 2022.
*Part of the request was transferred for a decision to NRE Tasmania regarding salmon mortality causes. However, the published information on the probable cause of mortalities disclosed by the EPA is a requirement under Environmental Licence conditions.
** The internal review conducted by an independent RTI Officer has determined that additional material should be redacted as it constitutes material that may impact on the affairs of a company by exposing it to competitive disadvantage (s37 of the RTI Act).
