Name of law: Public Information Disclosure Act First adopted: 2008 Last modified: n/a RTI Rating last updated: n/a


As a law that is still in the process of being implemented, Indonesia's access framework should rightly be viewed as a work in progress. In particular, our expert turned our attention to the fact that several issues which our analysis found in Indonesia's procedural framework (Indicators 16, 17, 20, 25) are in the process of being addressed through regulation by the Information Commissioner. We welcome this development, and the continued consolidation of Indonesia's access regime which has the potential to rank among the strongest in Asia. The biggest weaknesses in this law are the fact that the Information Commissioner's decisions are not legally enforceable, and the fact that information can be classified through laws other than the Law Regarding Transparency of Public Information.
