On November 29, 2021, Governor David Ige issued his Emergency Proclamation Related to COVID-19 (Proclamation) which supersedes the prior proclamations issued in response to the COVID-19 emergency.  As with the previous COVID-19-related proclamations issued between August 5 and October 1, 2021, this Proclamation contains no suspension of the UIPA.  This means that the UIPA and all of its deadlines are in full effect.  

The Uniform Information Practices Act (Modified), chapter 92F, Hawaii Revised Statutes (“UIPA”), is Hawaii’s public records law. The Office of Information Practices (“OIP”) was created by the Legislature in 1988 to administer the UIPA.
