Daniel Richards made this Official Information request to Department of Internal Affairs

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Daniel Richards to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Daniel Richards

Dear Department of Internal Affairs,
As per Digital Child Exploitation Filtering System Code of Practice - March 2013 section 4.3: "Meetings of the IRG will be held at least three times a year."
and 4.6 "Reports to the IRG and minutes of meetings of the IRG shall be published on the Department’s website."
I am requesting the minutes and briefing documents of all the 2020 and 2021 (if any) meetings of the Independent Reference Group.
There are no minutes or briefing documents on the DIA website for 2020/2021.

The 2019 meeting minutes (from https://www.dia.govt.nz/diawebsite.nsf/F...)
state 4.5: "Caroline Neame noted that the filter list size (604 websites) remains the same – but
there have been some changes made by variation. Filter list is overdue for audit check
of list."

I am requesting all documents and communications relating to the audit check done on the filter list mentioned in section 4.5 of the November 2019 meeting minutes.

I am also requesting the CAB paper and all documents/communications relating to the CAB paper mentioned in section 5.8 of the November 2019 meeting minutes.

Yours faithfully,

Daniel Richards
