FOI, University of Birmingham

Dear Sir/Madam

Section 8(1) of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) sets out the criteria for making a valid request. Section 8(1)(b) states that that a request must include the name of the applicant and an address for correspondence.

The Information Commissioner has issued guidance on what information would constitute a valid name. This guidance states that title and/or first name and surname satisfy this requirement.

Example: Mr Arthur Thomas Roberts could satisfy section 8(1)(b) of the FOIA by stating his name in a request for information as "Arthur Roberts", "A. T. Roberts", or "Mr Roberts", but not by stating his name as "Arthur" or "A.T.R."

The University of Birmingham confirms that it is applying this guidance and therefore cannot progress your request until you have provided a valid name.

Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.

Regards

Freedom of Information Team
University of Birmingham
