The Public Information Disclosure Act 2018 came into operation on the 1 July 2019 and replaced the SA Whistleblowers Protection Act 1993.

Under the new Act there are two types of information that can be received. These are:

Information that raises a potential issue of a substantial risk to the environment or to the health and safety of the public generally or a significant section of the public.

Public Administration information

Information that raises a potential issue of corruption, misconduct or maladministration in public administration.

Fact sheets

To assist the community in understanding the new protections, the following links to fact sheets are provided:

Fact Sheet for South Australian Community
