Cost: £399 + VAT

Speaker: Craig Geddes

The exemptions of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 allow public authorities to protect information that if disclosed may cause unjustified harm to a range of public interests. However, applying them inappropriately can lead to adverse decisions from the Commissioner and reputational damage.

This interactive workshop examines all the FOISA exemptions in detail, highlighting key Commissioner and court decisions. By the end of the course you will understand the exemptions and what should be included in Refusal Notices

Alongside the tutor’s expert knowledge, the case studies and exercises will enhance your knowledge of the Scottish FOI regime. This in an intermediate course. You should have a working knowledge of FOISA.

Excellent speaker, small number of delegates. A very useful update given speaker knows his area of expertise.

Craig presented the FOISA: The Exemptions Course well. It was a good mix of examples and learning and he introduced additional relevant information for us as the day progressed. I would recommend this course and will hopefully be able to attend another date for FOISA: A-Z soon.
