Resources and guidance

The Commissioner has produced resources and guidance to help organisations and individuals understand their rights and obligations under freedom of information law.

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

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 contact us to let us know.
