Freedom of Information

The freedom of information and environmental information laws are relatively new and the scope of their application is surprisingly wide.

  • What are the obligations on public authorities and how do these impact upon individuals and private sector organisations in their dealings with public authorities?
  • When must information be released and what are the exemptions?
  • How do the obligations interact with the provisions of the Data Protection legislation?

We can advise on how this complex area of the law affects you and your organisation. We can provide assistance in the drafting of appropriate disclosure policies and procedures.
