Freedom of Information Act 2000

What is Freedom of Information?

This area of the website explains your rights under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act and how the act may affect your research when using the archives. There is a separate section for records managers and archivists.

The Freedom of Information Act was passed in November 2000 and came fully into effect from 1 January 2005. FOI has changed how records are made available to you, and how we respond to enquiries about the archives.

FOI gives people a right of access to information held by public bodies. The range of public bodies covered by FOI is very wide, ranging from central government departments to individual schools and parish councils. A full list of the bodies affected - FOI authorities - can be found in Schedule 1 of the act. The list includes The National Archives and the rights of access apply to our own administrative records as well as to the archives (the records transferred to us from other government departments).

A separate act covers public authorities in Scotland - the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.

 
What does FOI apply to?

FOI applies to information, whatever its age, and whether it is at The National Archives or is still held by the originating government department. The previously applied 30-year standard closure period no longer determines access to records; instead, information is assumed to be 'open' right from the start unless one of the exemptions set out in the FOI Act applies.

Exemptions are grounds to withhold information. They are clearly defined in the Act, are limited in number and are usually used where some harm might result if the information were to be released.

There are separate Environmental Information Regulations giving similar rights of access to environmental information.
