This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

Please consider this as a request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The BBC was previously the subject of an Office of Surveillance Commissioners' (OSC) report dated 13th October 2010. This report was previously disclosed in the BBC's response to a Freedom of Information Act request, RFI20110611.

Under the terms of the Act please provide the following:

1. A copy of all information contained within OSC reports on the BBC produced since 1st January 2006 (excluding the previously disclosed report of 13th October 2010).

I am aware that the BBC was inspected by the OSC on 30th October 2008. Based on the previous pattern of inspection/reporting, I would expect the BBC to hold OSC report information from 2006, 2008, 2010 (already disclosed) and 2012.

Yours faithfully,

Dr T. Jackson

Just to draw this one to a conclusion, I received the Information Commissioner's Decision Notice today. The Commissioner, not surprisingly, has ruled that the BBC has breached section 10 of the Act.

I insisted on a Decision Notice as formal recognition of the BBC continued disregard for the law.

The ICO reference number is: FS50516336

This will be published on the ICO website in due course.
