Dear Civil Aviation Safety Authority,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Civil Aviation Safety Authority's handling of my FOI request 'Reduction of information publicly available in the AOC database'.

I believe that the documents or instruction exists as to the changes made to AOC register which reduced the amount of material that should be publicly available.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/r...

Yours faithfully,

Rob Cumming
