The PATI Act gives requesters a right to have the Information Commissioner review any decision (or failure to decide) made by the head of the public authority on an internal review. Following an investigation, the Information Commissioner may issue a decision, which is legally enforceable in the same manner as an order of the Supreme Court. The Information Commissioner seeks to resolve or narrow issues between the parties when possible and consistent with the rights under the PATI Act.

​The Information Commissioner’s Decisions are published below. Requesters are not identified.

If you wish to look at a public authority’s records that the Commissioner has ordered be disclosed, contact the public authority directly. You may refer to the public authority’s PATI request number and the Commissioner’s Decision. The ICO does not disclose public authorities’ records on their behalf, either during the Commissioner’s review or at the conclusion of her investigation.
