Mr Phil ip Sweeney 
By email –  
Dear Mr Sweeney 
Freedom of Information Request – Notice to identify documents under section 24AB of 
the FOI Act 
We refer to your request dated 30 October 2018 for access to documents under the 
Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act).  
Your request 
You request documents relating to PFS Nominees Pty Ltd and NULIS Nominees 
(Australia) Limited (corporate trustees), the Foster’s Group Superannuation Fund 
(fund), and the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA). 
Specifical y, you seek access to the fol owing documents: 
correspondence and/or file notes that would confirm that "comprehensive 
inquiries" were made with or both of these corporate trustees during 2009 -
2010; and 

(i ) 
correspondence and/or file notes that would confirm that "comprehensive 
inquiries" were made with APRA in relation to the entitlements of widows of 
these fund members during 2009-2010. 

Your request does not comply with paragraph 15(2)(b) of the FOI Act as it does not 
provide enough information for me to identify the document to which you seek 
access. Paragraph 15(2)(b) states that a request must ‘provide such information 
concerning the document as is reasonably necessary to enable a responsible officer 
of an agency to identify it’. As paragraph 15(2)(b) has not been met, ASIC may 
refuse to process your application under paragraph 24(1)(b) of the FOI Act. 
In its current form, I intend to refuse your application and not provide you with access 
to any documents under this request. However, to assist you to make a valid request I 
make the fol owing comments. 

Revising your request 
We consider that your request for documents that confirm ASIC made 
comprehensive inquiries, as it currently stands, does not request access to a specific 
ASIC can search for copies of correspondence and file notes; however, the current 
terms of your request prevent me from effectively identifying the documents you 
seek. For this reason, we require you revise your wording as to whether any such 
documents confirm comprehensive inquiries were made. 
Time frame for processing your request 
General y, an application must be processed within 30 days. However, please note 
that in accordance with section 24AB(8) of the FOI Act, the time for processing your 
request is suspended from the day that you receive this letter and resumes on the day 
after ASIC receives from you a request in writing which contains sufficient information 
to identify the documents required. 
You can contact me by phone on 03 9280 4614 or email at 
for assistance making your request in a revised form which removes the grounds for 
refusal. If you would like to consult with me for this purpose, you are required to 
contact me within 14 days after the date you receive this letter. 
Please note that fol owing any consultation, should you wish to amend the terms of 
your request, you must confirm the terms of your amended request in writing pursuant 
to paragraph 15(2)(a) of the FOI Act. 
Pursuant to subsection 24AB(6) of the FOI Act, before the end of the consultation 
period, you must do one of the fol owing: 
(a) withdraw the request; 
(b) make a revised request; or 
(c)  indicate that you do not wish to revise the request. 
If I do not hear from you about clarifying the terms of your request within 14 days after 
the date of this letter, your request wil  be taken to be withdrawn pursuant to 
subsections 24AB(6) and 24AB(7) of the FOI Act. 
Yours sincerely 
David Asadi
