The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) came into effect in January 2005 to encourage the development of a more open culture across the public sector by providing a statutory right of access to information held by Scottish public authorities. The Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (EIRs) sit alongside FOISA and provide a statutory right of access to environmental information held by Scottish public authorities.
In April 2019 the Scottish Parliament approved the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (Designation of Persons as Scottish Public Authorities) Order 2019 (the Order) bringing Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) and certain RSL subsidiaries under the scope of FOISA and the EIRs from 11 November 2019.
