FOI/EIR training for support staff (Exemptions)
This day long course compliments course 16 (dealing with handling FOI/EIR requests) and considers all the FOIA/EIR exemptions, with a detailed look at those most frequently used (e.g. confidential information, commercial prejudice), the interests they are there to protect, and any relevant public interest considerations. The Information Commissioner and Ministry of Justice guidance are considered, together with relevant Commissioner and Tribunal decisions on specific exemptions.
We can also deliver this course in the context of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 and the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004.
