Australian Human Rights Commission said they would publish "rules, guidelines, practices and precedents" under the Information Publication Scheme by "29 July 2012" https://www.humanrights.gov.au/informati...

They have not done this (at least in any way I can easily find by searching their website) and now a FOI process is required. What a shame.

Dear Anastacia Totoeva,

I refer to your previous email. I can advise that I am only seeking
"a list of policy documents, procedures and guidelines used by the Commission's staff in executing there functions inrespect of complaints made to the Commission under Anti-Discrimination Legislation."

I am not seeking the actual policy documents just a list of the documents held.

I hope this assists you in processing my request.

Yours sincerely,

Daniel Hinds
