Freedom of Information Act 2000

The Freedom of Information Act confers a right on individuals to know what information is held by public authorities and to obtain access to that information. Hence, where requested to do so, the Institute has a duty to disclose information held by it, including information held by it electronically.

Some information may be absolutely exempt from disclosure, for example, personal information and information received by the Institute in confidence. Other information may be exempt if the public interest lies in withholding the information rather than in disclosing it e.g. information that is commercially sensitive. As a consequence of this legislation, information provided by users of the Institute’s website may be disclosed to third parties where a request for access has been made and where no exemption applies.

Please consult our further information about the Institute and Freedom of Information, including the Institute’s publication scheme.
