FOIA Request Form
The FRC takes seriously its obligations under FOIA and is committed to transparency wherever possible. In some circumstances however, it is not possible to disclose all or any of the information sought by a requestor. Under the Act, public authorities are entitled to withhold information when an appropriate exemption can be applied. Examples of information which might be withheld from disclosure include non-public information about live or past investigations; commercially sensitive information relating to the FRC itself or to one of the bodies we regulate; and personal data about FRC members. The FRC will consider each request under the Act on its own merits and determine whether exemptions might apply to the information we hold. In some cases, it may be appropriate for the FRC to neither confirm nor deny whether we hold any information responsive to the request.
