Consultation on a Draft Order extending coverage of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 to Registered Social Landlords

Closes 7 Mar 2018

Opened 6 Dec 2017

Overview

Following previous consultation on extending coverage of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA) to Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) the Scottish Government is now consulting on the terms of a draft order. The draft order proposes to designate RSLs (and RSL subsidiaries) in so far as they undertake functions for which they are already subject to regulation and oversight by the Scottish Housing Regulator.
 

Why We Are Consulting

Views are sought on the terms of the order designating RSLs as public authorities for the purposes of FOISA.

It is in the interests of both RSLs - as bodies proposed for designation - as well as potential applicants to ensure that the terms of an order are as clear as possible.

This consultation provides the opportunity for all interested parties to comment on the draft order prior to it being laid in the Scottish Parliament.
