Model Publication Scheme
The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) requires Scottish public authorities to adopt and maintain a publication scheme. Authorities are under a legal obligation to:
- publish the classes of information that they make routinely available
- tell the public how to access the information they publish and whether information is available free of charge or on payment
The Police Service of Scotland has adopted the Scottish Information Commissioner’s Model Publication Scheme as updated in November 2018. Additional information is available in the Model Publication Scheme Guide to Information (PDF).
