The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act came into force on 1 January 2005, introducing a general statutory right of access to all types of information held by Scottish public authorities.
We publish a great deal of information as a matter of course and much of it is available on this website. Our publication scheme lists this information, so if you're looking for information, it's the best place to start.
If you can't find what you're looking for there, you can request information through Freedom of Information.
We would appreciate your comments on how useful you find our publication scheme or ways in which it could be improved. Please email Customer Services (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any suggestions.
