Resources and guidance

Arrow IconThe Commissioner has produced resources and guidance to help organisations and individuals understand their rights and obligations under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. 


Different organisations or individuals face different issues on: how the Act affects them; how they should respond to their obligations; or how they can make use of their rights under the Act.    

As well as a library of briefings and guidance on the legislation itself, the Commissioner has produced dedicated resources for specific interest groups. 

We will develop the content of these pages in response to feedback from research and site users.  If you see any gaps in our briefings, guidance and resources, please let us know on


  All walks of life...
  • Briefings and guidance - for authorities and users alike, on a wide range of aspects of FOISA and the EIRs.
  • Resources for media - including image library, downloadable logos, news releases and training resources for journalists.
