Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50148261
  • Date: 5 September 2007
  • Public Authority: Civil Aviation Authority
  • Summary: The complainant requested a copy of the final report by an operator to the CAA of the Mandatory Occurrence Report (MOR) of an incident which occurred on 29 August 2004. The Public Authority relied on section 44 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) to withhold the information. The Public Authority cited section 23 of the Civil Aviation Act 1982 as the relevant statutory bar on disclosure which informed their reliance on section 44 of the Act. After considering the case the Commissioner upheld the Public Authority’s decision to withhold the information under section 44 of the Act. The Commissioner does not require the Public Authority to take any further steps in relation to the complainant’s request. An appeal was made to the Information Tribunal, but the appeal was dismissed.
