How to Request a Public Record
The California Public Records Act (California Government Code §6250 et. seq.) provides the public with important rights to obtain access to records held by public agencies in the state. The Port of Long Beach is committed to providing reasonable access to all public records, with the exception of those documents exempt from disclosure by express provisions of law or considered confidential or privileged under the law.
The Port of Long Beach encourages public records requests be submitted in writing (email is acceptable) in order to assist staff in responding efficiently to your request. In accordance with the Public Records Act, the Port has 10 calendar days to respond to any request for public documents by indicating whether the documents exist and/or making the documents available.
