New Freedom of Information Act 2014

The President signed the new Freedom of Information Act 2014 into law on 14th October 2014. The new act now extends the Freedom of Information obligations to all public bodies unless specifically exempt under legislation. The €15 application fee for Freedom of Information requests is also being eliminated under the new act. This act will have various other implications for public bodies and also for those making Freedom of Information Requests.
