Information Security: Freedom of Information Act
The Freedom of information Act (FoI) gives the public a right to access all types of recorded information held by public authorities. It also sets out a number of exemptions from that right.
Information held within Shared Workspace is covered by the FoI.
HMRC Business Authorising Officers are responsible for handling any issues raised or requests made. The HMRC FoI Team must be told immediately of any such request as the time for HMRC response is limited to 20 days from date of receipt.
Information about FoI is on the HMRC internet site.
