Appendix

Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002

Appendix 1: Your right to seek a review

If you have made a request and are unhappy with the response from us (or
have not had a response), you have the right to request a review from us.

You should ask for a review no later than 40 working days after the date
you received a response from us. If we did not respond at all, you have 40
working days after the end of the 20-working day period for responding to
your request.

How to ask for a review

You must request a review in writing or another form that can be kept for
future use such as email, letter, fax, audio, or video tape.

You should:

• Give your name and an address (email or postal) for correspondence
• Provide details of your original request
• Say why you want us to review how we handled your request.

If you have been given contact details for a review, you should write to
that person.

Please direct all review requests to [5][Edinburgh Leisure request email] for the
attention of Jean Duncan. You can do so by replying to this email.

The review will be conducted by an individual who has not been involved in
the original response – in this instance our Director of People.

If we simply have not responded, or have not provided details of our
review procedure, you can make your request for review to any member of
our staff.

[7]https://www.itspublicknowledge.info/aski...

 

Appendix 2: Appeal to the Commissioner

If you're still unhappy after the review stage, you can appeal to the
Scottish Information Commissioner.

You must make your appeal within 6 months of when you received (or should
have received) your review response, and your appeal must be "valid" - see
the guidance below on how to make a valid appeal.

Full guidance on making an appeal can be found on the Scottish Information
Commissioner’s website.

[8]Appeal to the Commissioner

 

How to make an appeal

The Scottish Information Commissioner recommend that you use their
application form which can be found on their website [9]here.

You don't have to use this method, but if you do it will help to make sure
you provide all of the information the Commissioner needs to investigate
your case quickly.

If you don't use the form, your appeal must be in a format that can be
kept for future use, for example, by email or post or in an audio or video
recording.

 

How to Appeal without A Form

Your application must be made in writing (letter or email), or any other
format which can be kept for future use e.g. an audio or video recording.
Here is a list of what you must provide:

About you

• Full name
• Address, including postcode
• Contact phone number
• Email address
• If you are making the request on behalf of someone else or an
organisation, their name
• How you would like us to contact you?

 

About your information request and your request for review

• The name of the authority you made your request to
• The date you made your request
• Did the authority respond to your request?
• The date of the authority’s response (if one was provided)
• Why you asked the authority for a review?
• Did the authority carry out a review and respond to you?
• The date of the authority’s response (if one was provided)

 

About your application

• Why you are unhappy with the way the authority responded to your
request for review.

 

Sending the Details to the Scottish Information Commissioner

• Email to: [10][email address]
• Post to: Scottish Information Commissioner, Kinburn Castle,
Doubledykes Rd, St Andrews, KY16 9DS

 

What is a valid appeal?

A valid appeal is one where you:

• have been through the authority's review procedure
• provide the Commissioner with the information needed to investigate
your complaint
• have told the Commissioner what you are unhappy with.

Your appeal is most likely to be valid if you use their [11]application
form.

Ask yourself all of the questions below to check if your appeal is valid.
Alternatively, you can [12]download our detailed guidance on making a
valid appeal.

 

You can find further information on making an appeal on the Commissioner’s
website. Click [13]here.

 

Appendix 3: Appealing against the Commissioner’s decision

If you are unhappy with a decision made by the Scottish Information
Commissioner, you may be able to take the matter to the courts or complain
to the [14]Scottish Public Services Ombudsman (the SPSO).

What you can do next

There are two options to consider if you are unhappy with the
Commissioner's decision. 

• Going to the courts
• Complaining to the Scottish Public Services Ombudsman
