Covid-19 FOI Update

Temporary premises closure extended to 19 October 2020

18 September 2020

Like many other Scottish public authorities, the office of the Scottish Information Commissioner has been impacted by the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic, and our office premises are temporarily closed in line with government guidance. We have extended this closure to 19 October 2020. The Senior Management Team will review the premises closure by 5 October 2020.

We continue to work remotely using secure systems, and most of our services are available.

[NOTE ADDED 8 October 2020: On 7 October the Commissioner's Senior Team agreed that as timescales for relevant updates on national guidance have been pushed back, review of the closure of office premises will now take place by 23 October, and that the premises will remain temporarily closed until 26 October. Further updates will be added to the latest new page when available.]
