It is a fundamental guarantee of due process protection that a party is made aware of the basis for a decision and that he or she is given an opportunity to comment on the matter.

Topics that are dealt with in more detail include who has right of access, which documents constitute the ‘case documents’, exceptions to the right to access and enhanced access to information.
