Freedom of information Guide to Information

As a public authority, we are required to:

• publish the classes of information we make available;
• tell you how you can access this information and what it might cost.

We have adopted the Model Publication Scheme 2016, produced by the Scottish Information Commissioner.

Availability and formats

The information we publish through the model scheme is, where possible, published on our website. However, if you prefer, we can usually send it to you in print.  We may charge for this.

Exempt information

If a document contains information exempt under Scotland's Freedom of Information laws, we may remove or redact it.  If we do, we will explain why.

Copyright and re-use

You may use and reproduce the Crown copyright material we produce free of charge and in any format or medium.  We ask that you reproduce it accurately and in an appropriate context.  Please acknowledge the material as Crown copyright.


We publish information in seven of the nine classes below. 


You can view information on the Commission’s website free of charge.  We may charge for photocopying and postage, but only the costs we incur.  We will tell you what the costs are before you commit to any expenditure. Our photocopying charges per sheet of A4 paper are 10p for black and white copies and 30p for colour copies.
