Fees and charges associated with Freedom of Information requests
Some requests for information may be subject to a fee. If so, we will contact you before we proceed with your request.
The Freedom of Information Act and the associated Fees Regulations stipulate that we cannot levy a fee for information unless there is a statutory basis for doing so or the amount of time taken to locate the information exceeds the stipulated time.
However, we are allowed to charge for disbursements related to the provision of photocopying, reformatting information and postage, depending on the amount of materials used. If this is the case applicants will be made aware of any charges beforehand.
