In 2014 a new Freedom of Information Act replaced the previous 1997 and 2003 acts. The Freedom of Information Act 2014 establishes a number of important legal rights for those seeking access to official information.
Statutory rights under the FOI Act:
The FOI Act is designed to allow public access to information held by the BAI which is NOT routinely available through other sources. Access to information under FOI is subject to certain exemptions and involves specific procedures and time limits.
In addition this website also makes a wide range of information about the BAI available within a publication scheme which can be found here.
Information on how to make an FOI request are contained in an information booklet which you can download here
Applications should be made in writing and should indicate that the information is sought under Freedom of Information legislation. You are welcome to contact the BAI Freedom of Information office with any queries.
Before making an FOI request please firs visit the BAI’s FOI Publications section of the website which may contain the information you are requesting.
