Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information Act 2014 (FOI Act) was enacted on 14 October 2014. This Act provides that every person has the following legal rights:

  • the right to access records held by FOI bodies (as defined in the FOI Act applied);
  • the right to have personal information held on them by an FOI body corrected or updated where such information is incomplete, incorrect or misleading; and
  • the right to be given reasons for decisions taken by FOI bodies that affect them.

The FOI Act applied to the SBCI from 14 April 2015 enabling members of the public to seek access to the following records held by the SBCI (or held by the NTMA on the SBCI’s behalf):

  • records relating to personal information held on them no matter when the record was created; and
  • other records created on or after 21 April 2008

The FOI Act can be accessed on the Oireachtas website.
