Public Record Requests
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.
Record Request Procedure
Fill out the Request for Public Records Form to identify each requested record or document. Please be as specific as possible. Non-specific inquiries may cause delayed response times.
The Custodian of Record will determine if the Port has documents responsive to your request and respond to you within 10 calendar days of receiving the form. You will also be informed of any reproduction charges.
If you would like to review the original documents at the Records Center, please contact staff to arrange an appointment time.
If you have questions about obtaining public records, please contact the Records Center at (562) 283-7520.
