Application to restrict public access

You have a right to apply to us to restrict public access to information relating to you that is on the register. We may only grant an application to restrict public access to information if there are exceptional circumstances that justify the restriction.

You must apply to VCAT within 28 days of receiving notice of our decision.

Submitting an application to restrict public access

Applications to restrict public access can be made using the Restrict access to details on the public register form, email, in writing or over the phone. An application to restrict public access must be supported by evidence.
