Access to information


You can read our leaflet on Access to information (in pdf format) to help explain what information you can get from SLAB under data protection and Freedom of Information laws. This leaflet explains:

Our Guide to Information tells you what information we publish through the Publication Scheme.

 

We publish a disclosure log which details some of the requests for information that we have answered.

 

There is also a separate leaflet that explains your rights under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004.

 

Read our Records Management Policy and Plan.
