Operation of FOI Act at NBN Co 
In addition, I would refer you to NBN Co’s commercial activities exemption (CAE), as per section 7(3A) and Part II of 
Schedule 2 of the FOI Act. As you may be aware, documents that are in relation to NBN Co’s “commercial activities” are 
not subject to the operation of the FOI Act. For your reference, the Information Commissioner completed a review decision 
in January 2012 (the Internode Decision), which provides background and guidance as to the application of the CAE to 
NBN Co. The Internode Decision may be found by clicking on the following link. While I am not making a formal decision, 
nor have I begun to examine any relevant documents, there is a possibility that the documents falling within the terms of 
an FOI request to NBN Co may be subject to the CAE.
