The Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (PID Act) promotes the integrity and accountability of the Commonwealth public sector by creating a framework for facilitating the reporting of suspected wrongdoing and ensuring timely and effective investigation of reports.
The public interest disclosure scheme supplements existing avenues for complaints and investigations, and provides support and protection to persons who make disclosures under the Act.
More information about the public interest disclosure scheme is available from the Commonwealth Ombudsman website.
Making a public interest disclosure
Public interest disclosures can be made openly or anonymously, orally or in writing, to an Authorised Officer under the PID Act. We have several Authorised Officers appointed under the PID Act.
To email your public interest disclosure or request assistance to make a disclosure, email PID@foodstandards.gov.au.
Your identity and contact details, as well as the content of your public interest disclosure, will be protected in accordance with the PID Act.
