Freedom of Information
The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 gives you the right to access information held by us. The Act sets out what is not covered and also what we have to publish.
From 1 January 2005, people have had the right to request information and be told whether the organisation holds that information. People also have the right to be supplied with this information, although, in some cases organisations don’t need to provide this information.
The Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 also give you the right to ask us for environmental information.
Anyone can request information. There are no restrictions on your age, nationality or where you live.
Our approach to Freedom of Information is based on the Scottish Government’s 6 principles of Freedom of Information. We will regularly publish information and our responses to Freedom of Information requests on our website.
