Iowa Admin. Code r. 641-177.2 - Definitions

For purposes of this chapter, the following definitions shall apply:

"Confidential record" in these rules means a record which is not available as a matter of right for examination and copying by members of the public under applicable provisions of law. Confidential records include records or information contained in records that the agencies are prohibited by law from making available for examination by members of the public, and records or information contained in records that are specified as confidential by Iowa Code section 22.7, or other provision of law, but that may be disclosed upon order of a court, the lawful custodian of the record, or by another person duly authorized to release the record. Mere inclusion in a record of information declared confidential by an applicable provision of law does not necessarily make that entire record a confidential record. Included in the definition are those data collected by the department, pursuant to 1996 Iowa Acts, chapter 1212, for preparation and dissemination as compilations.

"Department" is defined as Iowa department of public health.

"Record" in these rules means the whole or a part of a "public record" as defined in Iowa Code section 22.1, that is owned by or in the physical possession of this agency.
