Freedom of Information

Enterprise Ireland became subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1997 with effect from 21 January 2001. Click here for further information on Freedom of Information.

Enterprise Ireland became subject to the Freedom of Information Act 1997 with effect from 21 January 2001. The Freedom of Information Act established three new statutory rights:

  • A legal right for each person to access information held by public bodies.
  • A legal right for each person to have official information relating to him/herself amended where it is incomplete, incorrect or misleading.
  • A legal right to obtain reasons for decisions affecting oneself.

The Act asserts the right of members of the public to obtain access to official information to the greatest extent possible, consistent with the public interest and the right to privacy of individuals.

The Freedom of Information (Amendment) Act 2003 – which came into effect in July 2003 – made a number of amendments to the 1997 Act, notably in relation to Fees.
