FOISA Schedule 1 - Public Authorities

From FOIwiki
Jump to navigationJump to search


The following list was taken from Schedule 1 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 as it appears on the Statute Law Database[1]. Certain changes to layout/format may be made (e.g we may remove full stops from the end of lines). As this is a wiki page we cannot guarantee it agrees exactly to the official version of Schedule 1 of the Act.

Part of the reason for this page is to make it easier for people to see which public authorities are subject to the Act but not yet on so that more can be added.

The list is generally kept updated with new legislative amendments, and is probably up to date as of 2010.

You can make FOI requests to these public authorities via the links provided to

Entries highlighted in yellow are those we don't have contact email addresses for. We rely on volunteer help for these, so please contact the WhatDoTheyKnow team with an email address for the authority & a URL for their homepage if you're able to help out.

Entries struck through are those that have been removed from Schedule 1 by a Statutory Instrument. Entries added or amended will have the relevant Act or Order appended after it in brackets, eg (added by SI2005/3593). There may be number of public authorities named in Schedule I which are effectively defunct, but have not yet been formally removed from the Act - a note will be added below describing their status if applicable.
