FOI gives you the right to ask for a review if you're unhappy with an FOI response. If you're unhappy with the response to an FOI review, you can also appeal the case to the Commissioner. You can find out more about your right to review or appeal a response at www.itspublicknowledge.info/what-if-im-unhappy
Reviews and appeals must be made within the following time limits:
- FOI reviews must be made within 40 working days of your receipt of an FOI response
- Appeals to the Commissioner must be made within six months of your receipt of an FOI review response
You should use the actual date on which you receive the response from the public authority to work out your time limit for requesting a review or making an appeal to the Commissioner.
If you haven't receive a response, the period should be counted from the date by which you should have received a response.
