Freedom Of Information
COVID-19 INFO HUB
The information hub focuses on the impact of the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic on freedom of information (FOI) in Scotland. It brings together all guidance, information and latest news on the issue from the Scottish Information Commissioner.
This is EKHA’s guide to information under the Model Publication Scheme, as required by the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. Under the Act, anyone can ask for information from us.
The publication scheme shows what sort of information we hold and where you can get it and EKHA has adopted the Model Publication Scheme 2017 produced by the Scottish Information Commissioner. Information included in this publication scheme is available on this website. For those without access to the website or those wishing to make a request for information in paper form then you can contact us at:

How we deal with Freedom of Information Requests
We use guidance from the Scottish Information Commissioner on how to deal with requests. Click here for their Get It Right First Time leaflet, this shows how we deal with a written request.
To date, EKHA have received 7 requests for information, all of which we have responded to as Freedom of Information requests. No fees were charged for any of the information provided.
EKHA has refused only 1 of these requests where that information was not held by us, but we signposted the requester to an organisation which could provide the information. In the other 6 cases, we provided the information and/or signposted to other sources of information where it was already published online.
No Environmental Information Requests have been received to date.
No reviews have been requested to date and no cases have been appealed with the Scottish Information Commissioner.
