2009 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission

Suppression and Exclusion Orders

On occasions the Commission makes suppression and exclusion orders which prohibit the publication of certain information and also exclude the public from the hearing room.
Whenever this happens, notification of the order will be posted in the Hearing Schedule on our website and affixed to the doors of the Commission.

At the same time, those media in attendance will be informed of the order(s) and a general media alert will also be issued.

The nature of some of these orders means it would be inappropriate to publish them on our website. However, they can all be viewed at the doors of the Commission.

Individuals do not risk breaching orders by accessing / referring to any material on the Commission website as this material will comply with any orders that have already been issued.
