Details

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOI Act) and the associated Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIRs) came fully into force on 1 January 2005.

This bulletin presents statistics on their implementation within the central government monitored bodies for the quarterly period of April to June 2016.

Statistics standards and policies

Cabinet Office official statistics are governed by the standards set out by the UK Statistics Authority in their code of practice. This can be found in our statistics standards and policies.

Freedom of Information statistics were assessed against the Code of Practice for Official Statistics during 2016 by the UKSA. An assessment report was published in July 2016. The Authority judged that FOI Statistics may continue to be designated as National Statistics, subject to implementation of the requirements listed in the assessment report by March 2017.

Cabinet office have published a development plan of its proposed actions to respond to the identified requirements and to ensure the increased trustworthiness, quality and public value of FOI statistics.
