All information (including name and address details) contained in submissions will be made available to the public on the RBA Review website unless you indicate that you would like all or part of your submission to remain in confidence. Respondents who would like only part of their submission to remain in confidence should submit the confidential component in a separate document. Automatically generated confidentiality statements in emails do not suffice for these purposes.

Recognising that former RBA Board Members and Staff may have confidential information that is relevant to the work of the Review, the RBA has provided an authority for former Board Members and Staff to disclose relevant information to the Review. The Bank will inform current staff directly about arrangements for them to disclose relevant information to the Review.

Please also note that any submission provided to the RBA Review may be the subject of a request under the federal Freedom of Information Act 1982. Any request for access to or a copy of a confidential submission is determined in accordance with that Act, which has provisions designed to protect sensitive information given in confidence. The Act includes various exemptions for documents such as: documents provided in confidence (e.g. confidential submissions) and personal information. Any FOI application that relates to personal information or confidential submissions will be processed in accordance with these exemptions.
