Freedom of Information Publication Scheme

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) provides individuals with a right to request any recorded information held by Scotland’s public authorities. Anyone can use this right, and information can only be withheld where FOISA expressly permits it.

Section 23 of FOISA also requires that all Scottish public authorities maintain a publication scheme. A publication scheme sets out the types of information that a public authority routinely makes available.

Transport Scotland has adopted the Model Publication Scheme developed and approved by the Scottish Information Commissioner, who are responsible for enforcing FOISA.
