Every accused person has a right to a fair trial and the disclosure process secures the rightto a fair trial.

Investigators and prosecutors have common law and statutory disclosure obligations and to comply with these obligations, it may be necessary for investigators and prosecutors to seek access to material held by a government department or other Crown body.

This document includes background information on the disclosure process and guidance on how civil servants, government departments and other Crown bodies can assist investigators and prosecutors where there are requests for access to material, and where appropriate, provision of the information and material sought.
