Environmental Information Regulations
The Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) are often considered the poor cousin of FOI and have sometimes been referred to as the 'Cinderella' regime. However, the reality is they are equally important. Many EIR requests are mistakenly labelled as FOIs.

In this workshop, we will explain how to identify environmental information under EIR, how to answer requests, what to publish pro- actively and how to correctly refuse requests by claiming the exceptions. Using case studies, quizzes and exercises delegates will feel more confident about EIR compliance after this workshop.
