Request must be in writing to the Public Body that holds the records.
When you make a request you must:
- specify that the request is being made under the FOI Act
- be clear enough so that the public body to whom the request is addressed understands what records are being requested. In cases where the public body is not clear what records are being requested, it must assist the requester to put his/her request in such a way that the records being sought can be identified.
Alternatively, you may download the Application Form available on this website.

Each Public Body has one or more FOI Officers whose responsibility it is to handle requests made under the Freedom of Information Act, 1997.
