Freedom of Information: The Exemptions

The exemptions in the Freedom of Information Act 2000 allow public authorities to protect information that if disclosed might cause unjustified harm to the authority, individuals or other bodies. However, applying them inappropriately can lead to adverse decisions from the Information Commissioner and reputational damage.

This workshop examines all the FOI exemptions in detail, highlighting key Commissioner and Tribunal decisions. We will also discuss what needs to be included in Refusal Notices.

Duration 1 day
Timings 10.00 - 16.00
CPD Credit(s) 4.5 points
Fee £389 + vat
Speaker was clear and engaging. DH, Electoral Commission
Very clear slides, incorporated into a very helpful booklet to take away from the session. The trainer was very knowledgeable and friendly and the hotel / lunch was fantastic. Looking forward to my future courses with Act Now
GR, Swale Borough Council
The session gave a great update on recent developments and was a good opportunity to speak with colleagues from other organisations. AH, Wirral Boroguh Council
I would definitely recommend this course. It gave me a much better understanding of FOI Exemptions, where and how to use them.
