Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act provides a general right of access to information held by public authorities in the UK subject to certain exemptions.

Authorities are also obliged to publish more information and make it easily accessible to the public. The Department of Justice (DOJ) Publication Scheme lists the types of information that the DOJ publishes or intends to publish. Virtually all of this information can be downloaded free of charge. Subjects and titles of items can be obtained from the Publications and Statistics & Research sections of this website.

If you believe that the information you require is not readily accessible (i.e. it cannot be found on the website or in a public library) then you may wish to make a written request for information to:

Department of Justice
Freedom of Information Team
Information Services Division
Block 2
Knockview Buildings
Tel: 02890 378617

If the information you require relates to the work of another department or agency in Northern Ireland then you should contact the appropriate department directly.
