In the spirit of promoting greater openness in government, the Australian National Maritime Museum maintains a list of documents disclosed under the FOI Act (with redactions) from 1 January 2011. It is hoped that this measure will enable members of the public and the media to quickly and easily obtain access to material which has already been disclosed under the FOI Act.

The Australian National Maritime Museum FOI Disclosure Log contains downloadable documents. Due to the nature of the documents if they are not in an accessible format members of the public can contact the Museum to discuss alternative access arrangements.
