Introduced in the UK in 2000, the Freedom of Information Act provides individuals with the right to access information held by public authorities such as government departments, local authorities, the NHS, state schools and police forces.The Act covers any recorded information held by a public authority in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and is regulated by the Information Commissioner's Office.

The core principle of the Act is that, subject to there not being a good reason for information to remain private, the public are entitled to know about the activities of public authorities. There are approximately 120,000 requests made per year to organisations covered by the legislation.
