The New FOI Act - What You Need to Know

Event Date:

We will hold the next in our series of Freedom of Information seminars in our offices at South Bank House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4.

At this seminar we will discuss the new Freedom of Information Act 2014. The new Act came into operation on being signed into law by the President on 14 October and heralds a new era in FOI in Ireland, containing significant amendments and additions to the previous FOI regime. We will focus on these changes and how they will impact on all FOI bodies, old and new.

Topics include:

Processing FOI requests under the FOI Act 2014 – what’s new?
Catherine Allen, Partner, Public & Administrative Law, Mason Hayes & Curran

New exemption provisions and grounds for non-disclosure
Niall Michel, Partner, Public & Administrative Law, Mason Hayes & Curran
