Make a Freedom Of Information request

How to make a Freedom of Information (FOI) request

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA) means that anyone, anywhere, can ask for any corporate information we hold.

You can contact CITB using any of the following routes:

What can I ask about?

You can ask about anything but please search or browse this website first, to check if the information is already available.

We aim to be as transparent as we can and to make as much information as possible available without the need to request it.

Responding to FOI requests

Once we receive your request we will reply in writing within 20 working days. If we need clarification, or there is likely to be any delay, we will contact you.

In our reply, we will confirm whether or not we hold the information and provide either all or some of it. If we can’t provide the information we will explain why. For example: we will not be able to provide you with information which may compromise another person’s right to privacy.

In most instances requests are free. However, in certain circumstances we are allowed to charge to cover costs. If so, we will write to you giving details of the amount you must pay.

If you are not happy that your request has been dealt with appropriately, you can contact the Information Commissioner
