Because the ICO is a public authority, any Bermudian or Bermuda resident may make a PATI request to the ICO for records about the ICO’s work. In response to those PATI requests, the ICO may disclose records to the requester. The ICO’s handbook on how we handle PATI requests is here.

The ICO’s public disclosure library is updated regularly, with records disclosed by the ICO in response to PATI requests that may have a wider public interest. It does not include everything the ICO has disclosed to PATI requesters under the PATI Act. For instance, information that is personal to a PATI requester is not posted to the ICO’s disclosure library.
