About FOI 2019

Freedom of Information 2019

In 2002 the Freedom of Information Act made information held by public authorities in Scotland accessible to the public as part of Scotland’s commitment to becoming more open.  Almost 17 years later, Scotland is reviewing the implementation of the Freedom of Information Act (FOISA).

Holyrood’s annual Freedom of Information Conference is a fixture in the calendar, covering the latest issues affecting the sector and providing invaluable learning and networking opportunities. This year we will explore the results of the FOISA parliamentary consultation, looking at improving implementation and practice. We will also explore how FOISA is being extended to other areas particularly, how registered landlords can respond to FOI requests. You’ll have the opportunity to learn how organisations have planned FOI requests and get an insight view of how public authorities respond to FOI requests.
