Freedom of Information: an introduction

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 gives a general right of access to the information held by a broad range of Scottish public authorities. The Act covers the Scottish Executive, local authorities, health boards, universities, police forces, and a large number of other public bodies.

FoI Policy

East Renfrewshire Council adopted a Freedom of Information Policy in December 2004. This commits the Council to properly dealing with all information requests. The Policy established a cross-departmental Freedom of Information Working Group, and emphasises the departmental nature of the responsibility for dealing with Freedom of Information Request. Legal Services provide the lead in terms of establishing procedures, etc., and will also deal with any cross-departmental requests.

Publication Scheme

The Council has produced a publication scheme, available from our website or from our libraries. This document lists all the classes of information that we make available, as well as information about the format of the information and how you can access it.

Making a request for information

There may be a charge for more extensive enquiries, and those which cost us over £600 to process may be refused. We will endeavour to deal with your request as quickly as possible, but it may take up to 20 working days from receipt.
Please note that there are a number of exemptions under Freedom of Information. such as those relating to personal information, material otherwise available, confidentiality, commercial interest, crime and national security. If any of these exemptions are applied, we will issue a refusal notice stating the reason why you have not been given the information that you had asked for and how you can appeal that decision.

Scottish Information Commissioner

Freedom of Information is promoted by the Scottish Information Commissioner. His website has a wealth of further information on all aspects of Freedom of Information: see www.itspublicknowledge.info/. You can also find out more about FoI on the website of the Scottish Executive: www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/Government/FOI
