The Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 set out enforceable regulations that govern the public’s right to access environmental information we hold.
The requirements are slightly different to those of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. One main difference is that from 1 April 2012 information that costs over £100 to provide to the applicant, will be charged for, in accordance to our Schedule of Costs. Please see the publications sections for a link to our Schedule of Costs.
