Introduction

In January 2007, the ICO released via FOI [1] a number of their "Line to take" policy documents - these indicate how they approach certain types of complaints. They are listed in full here.

Here is the ICO's description of what they are, from the above document:

"By way of background, these documents are produced by our Policy Team as internal policy lines on the interpretation and application of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 for the benefit of the FOI Department as a whole. The policy lines are signed off at Assistant Commissioner level, and you will note that in the main they derive from Decision Notices and/or Information Tribunal decisions."

August 2010

  • An updated list has been requested via FOI and is available on WhatDoTheyKnow [2]. There are now 177 LTTs.
  • Work is currently in progress to transcribe the updated list of LTTs into a more structured format on FOIwiki, to enable the policies to be more easily interlinked with the other information on the site.
  • This is necessary if they are to be easily referred to, as the data was released by the ICO in PDF format, spanning 7 files of around 20-30MB each, with the text poorly OCR'ed. The files were split as follows:
