Environmental Information (Scotland) Regs 2004

Access to environmental information is governed by these regulations instead of Freedom of Information.

The regulations (SSI 2004 No 520) transpose in Scotland from January 1, 2005 the EU Directive 2003/4/EC on access to environmental information and the corresponding provisions of the UN Aarhus Convention. The regulations have much in common with the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 . They are available from The Stationery Office (TSO) and may also be viewed on its website.
