Dear Therapeutic Goods Administration,

For the purposes of the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the documents that identify the countries of manufacture for each vaccine on the NIP. I understand that manufacturers are protected from disclosing this information, and for this reason, I do not request to know which vaccine is manufactured where. I only request to know the various countries of manufacture.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Ms Miller

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST – NOTIFICATION OF RECEIPT

I am writing to notify you that the Department of Health (Department) has
received your request for access to documents under the Freedom of
Information Act 1982 (FOI Act), with the following scope:

“I hereby request the documents that identify the countries of manufacture
for each vaccine on the NIP. I understand that manufacturers are protected
from disclosing this information, and for this reason, I do not request to
know which vaccine is manufactured where. I only request to know the
various countries of manufacture.”

Under section 15(5)(b) of the FOI Act, the agency has 30 calendar days
after the date your request was received in which to provide a decision in
response to your request for access. A decision is currently due on or
before 13 September 2019.

However, where there is requirement to undertake consultation with
affected third parties, this timeframe is extended by a further 30 days.
It may also be extended in certain circumstances, including with your
agreement or where the Department applies to the Office of the Australian
Information Commissioner for an extension.

 

In addition, please note that if the decision maker decides that you are
liable to pay a charge in relation to your request then this timeframe is
extended pending payment of a deposit. You will be notified by the
Department if you are liable to pay a charge and/or if third party
consultation is required.

 

PROCESSING YOUR REQUEST

To assist us to streamline the processing of your request we ask you to
consider and respond to the following questions.

 

1.       Personal Information

Documents containing personal information, (e.g. the names and contact
details of any individuals, or any information that could reasonably
identify an individual) may require the Department to consult with the
identified individuals or parties. This consultation is likely to add to
the time taken to process your request, and potentially increase the
charge imposed on you.

 

We would therefore be grateful if you could confirm if you are seeking
access to personal information in the documents (e.g. names, contact
details, addresses) relating to:

·         third parties; and

·         Commonwealth staff (please note that unless you advise
otherwise, we will assume that you do not seek access to personal
information of Commonwealth employees below Senior Executive Service
level).

 

If you are not seeking access to any personal information, you can simply
reply: 'no personal information requested'.

 

If you are seeking access to specific types of personal information,
please specify the type of personal information you require.

 

2.       Duplicate Documents

Under section 4(1) of the FOI Act, the definition of a document includes
‘any copy, including an part of any copy, of a reproduction or duplicate’.
Confirmation that you are not seeking duplicate documents may enable more
timely and less costly processing of your request.

 

Can you please clarify if you are seeking duplicate copies, either in part
or in full, as part of your request?

 

If you are not seeking access to duplicate documents, you can simply
respond: ‘no duplicates requested’.

 

We look forward to hearing from you by COB Tuesday 27 August 2019.

If you have any queries, please contact the FOI team on (02) 6232 8806, or
via email at [1][email address].

Kind regards
