Documents – Freedom of Information

As a public body, Nestrans is required by the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 to operate in an open and transparent way and make information available to the public.

This Act provides a right of access to information held by public bodies. It is enforced by the Office of the Scottish Information Commissioner who has the necessary powers to regulate compliance.

Our Freedom of Information Publication Scheme sets out our approach to meeting the requirements of the Act and the different types of information we make available.  The Scheme has been approved by the Scottish Information Commissioner.
