From 11 November 2019, Registered Social Landlords will fall to be classed as public authorities for the purposes of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. RSLs will need to ensure that staff are able to identify and respond to requests for information within the time limits imposed. RSLs will need to know when they are required to provide information and when it is appropriate to withhold information and refuse requests. Making that assessment is key in responding to requests.
These changes will also have repercussions for RSLs in terms of governance and ensuring that they comply not only with their freedom of information obligations, but also with the Scottish Housing Regulator’s Regulatory Framework.
This seminar will look at the changes, how they affect RSLs and the steps that can be taken to respond to these requests and to ensure that RSLs stay on the right side of both the Scottish Housing Regulator and the Scottish Information Commissioner.
