Privacy – further information

The Ministry of Health's privacy policy describes how the Ministry will use and protect your information.

Publishing submissions

Please note a summary of your submission may be published by the Ministry of Health. Most often this happens when we issue a document that reviews the submissions received.

Any submission you make becomes public information. Anyone can ask for copies of all submissions under the Official Information Act 1982 (OIA). The OIA says we must make the information available, unless we have a good reason for withholding it. You can find those grounds in sections 6 and 9 of the OIA.

Reasons might include, it's commercially sensitive or it's personal information. However, any decision the Ministry makes to withhold information can be reviewed by the Ombudsman, who may require the information be released. This may include personal details such as names and emails.
