Freedom of Information Act 2000
The FOI Act is a law giving people general right of access to see all types of recorded information held by public authorities, it sets out exemptions to that right and places a number of obligations on public authorities (including the MRC and its institutions such as the MRC Functional Genomics Unit).
From the 1 January 2005, any person who makes a written request to a public authority for information must be informed whether the public authority holds that information, and, subject to exemptions, be supplied with that information. The public authority must reply promptly, not later than the 20th working day following receipt of the request for information, and in the format requested.
