SRAC Publication Scheme
What is the publication scheme?
The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 gives a general
right of access to all types of recorded information held
by public authorities, sets out exemptions from that right
and places a number of obligations on public authorities.
Any person who makes a request to a public authority for information
is entitled to receive that information, subject to exemptions.
The Scottish Records Advisory Council, in the interests
of the public, and mindful of the need for openness and transparency,
has prepared this publication scheme to meet its obligations
under Section 23 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland)
Act 2002. Under the Act we are required to specify
- the classes of information we publish or intend to publish
- how information is published and
- whether the information is available free of charge
- or on payment of a fee.
The purpose of our publication scheme is to let you know
what information is readily available from us. By readily
available we mean that the information can be obtained on
our section of the National Archives of Scotland website
(www.nas.gov.uk) and from us on request.
