Suppressing personal information from the EPA public registers
In certain circumstances it is possible for some or all personal information to be suppressed (section 58 of the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act 1998). However, personal information will not be suppressed if the EPA considers that the public interest in maintaining public access to the information outweighs any individual interest in suppressing the information. The decision to suppress information or not only applies to the EPA public registers.
You can make a request to suppress personal information using the online form below or by email.
To help us assess your request, you should include:
- details of what personal information you are requesting be suppressed from the EPA public registers
- an explanation of why the licence or certificate holder believes that the publication of their information can affect their personal safety or well-being if not suppressed
- an explanation of any other individual interest that may have in suppressing the information
- evidence supporting your case, for example:
- police report/s
- court outcome
- letter from solicitor
- medical certificate.
