The regulations define 'non-personal information' as information that is not personal information about the applicant.
They also prescribe which personal details concerning persons who were or are officers of an agency, or persons who perform or have performed services for an agency under a contract of service, are to be considered 'personal information' for the purposes of cl 3 of Sch 1. The prescribed matter is therefore not considered to be exempt matter because it would disclose personal information about such persons.
The non-exempt matter in relation to a person who is or has been an officer of an agency (for cl 3(3)) is, in summary: (a) name; (b) relevant qualifications; (c) position held; (d) functions and duties; and (e) 'anything done by the person in the course of performing or purporting to perform the person's functions or duties'.
The non-exempt matter in relation to a person who performs or has performed services for an agency (for cl 3(4)) is, in summary: (a) name; (b) relevant qualifications; (c) title of position in contract; (d) nature of services; and (e) 'the functions and duties of the position or the details of the services to be provided'.
The regulations also list those agencies considered to be 'related agencies' for the purposes of cl 2(4) of sch 2, relieving them of some reporting obligations.
