Freedom of Information – Publication Scheme

Section 8 of the Freedom of Information Act 2014 requires FOI bodies to prepare and publish as much information as possible in an open and accessible manner on a routine basis outside of FOI, having regard to the principles of openness, transparency and accountability as set out in Sections 8(5) and 11(3) of the Act. This allows for the publication or giving of records outside of FOI provided that such publication or giving of access is not prohibited by law. The scheme commits FOI bodies to make information available as part of their normal business activities in accordance with this scheme.

BIM has prepared its FOI Publication Scheme in accordance with the FOI Act 2014 and it is published below. Each link in the scheme leads to a page comprising relevant information in the category or links to relevant information on the BIM website. If the information you require cannot be found here, you may wish to conduct a search on the BIM website, or to contact BIM. If the information is not currently made publicly available by the EPA, you may consider making a Freedom of Information Request.
