Summary of FOI

《188bet体育在线APP下载》(FoIA)于2000年11月30日通过,并将全面生效, across the public sector, on 1 January 2005. The Act is enforced by the Information Commissioner, who oversees both Freedom of Information and Data Protection legislation. 该法案涵盖了该法案中定义的“公共机构”,包括高等教育机构. 该法案为公众获取公共当局持有的所有类型的“记录”信息创造了新的权利, sets out exemptions from that general right, and places a number of obligations on public authorities. 《188bet体育在线APP下载》的目的是在整个公共部门促进更大程度的开放和问责. 它通过赋予公共当局根据该法案的两项主要责任来实现这一目标:

  • The University was committed to producing a publication scheme, 哪一个是188bet亚洲体育在线APP所掌握的向公众提供的常规信息的指南, such as websites and prospectuses etc. Under the Act, “信息”包括机构内任何地方持有的所有信息,不必以特定文件或结构的形式存在.
  • 188bet亚洲体育在线APP必须处理个人请求并发布信息,除非188bet亚洲体育在线APP有理由因该法案的豁免而扣留信息.

Under the Data Protection Act, individuals already have the right to access information about themselves, held on computer, and in some paper files. Such requests for information are known as a 'subject access request’. For the University and other public bodies, 《188bet体育在线APP下载》将这些权利扩展到允许访问188bet亚洲体育在线APP持有的所有类型的信息, whether personal or non-personal.

该法案要求大学,作为一个公共机构,采用和维持一个 publication scheme. 出版计划是大学致力于出版的信息指南. 这样做的目的是主动提供大量的信息, without the need to respond to specific requests.

Any individual can make a request to the University for information. 提出请求的人不一定是该信息的主体. 如果个人是该信息的主体,则数据保护法保护数据主体的原则将优先于任何信息自由权利.

The Act gives applicants the following rights:

  • 被告知信息是否存在——即确认或否认的义务
  • To receive the information, and where possible in the manner requested, for example in paper or electronic format
  • To receive reasons for a decision to withhold information.

Anyone is able make a request for information, although the request must be made in writing, which includes emails and fax etc. 申请人必须包括姓名和地址(电子邮件地址是可以接受的),并提供所需信息的详细信息. Such requests must be dealt with within 20 working days.

该法案规定了获取大学所持有信息的一般权利,但有些信息可能被视为豁免信息,因此不必为响应个人请求而提供. There are 23 exemptions as follows:

s21. Information accessible to public by other means

s22. Information intended for future publication

s23. 由处理安全事务的机构提供的或与之有关的信息

s24. National security

s26. 国防

s27. International relations

s28. Relations within the United Kingdom

s29. The economy

s30. Investigations and proceedings conducted by public authorities

s31. Law enforcement

s32. Court records etc

s33. Audit functions

s34. Parliamentary privilege

s35. Formulation of Government policy etc.

s36. 妨碍公共事务的有效进行(由下议院或上议院持有的豁免信息)

s37. Communications with Her Majesty etc and honours

s38. Health and safety

s39. Environmental information

s40. Personal information
