Decisions Round-up

The Commissioner's decisions are a valuable source of learning and improvement, for anyone wanting to gain a better understanding of FOI. Our regular Decisions Round-up gives you a quick insight into the key learning points from our decisions. We briefly explain what we did, what we found, and what difference it could make. 

Covid-19 FOI UpdateFollowing the temporary closure of the Commissioner’s office premises, we are continuing to issue decisions on appeal investigations, but are not currently able to publish them on our decisions database. We hope to be able to do so again soon, but in the meantime if you have questions about recent decisions which have been issued since our office closed, please email us at

You can find out about our Decisions Round-ups as soon as they are published by following us on Twitter.
