Freedom of Information (FOI)

Freedom of Information legislation gives you the right to access information held by public authorities. Under FOI, everyone has equal rights to access this information. All you have to do is ask.

About Freedom of Information (FOI)

The Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011 is designed to make us more accountable and transparent in the way we operate and make decisions. We are committed to complying with both the letter and the spirit of FOI.

How FOI can help you

Access to information under FOI can:

  • help to inform you of how the government and public authorities work in Jersey

  • allow you to take part in debate about issues that may affect you or your family

  • help you find information to develop ideas or inform your business decisions

Before you start

Follow these three easy steps:

  1. Check whether the information you require is already available by other means

  2. Check that you are not requesting your own personal information

  3. If you are in any way unsure about your request consult our full guide on how to make an FOI request
