Applying for access to files under the Freedom of Information Act

Description

The Saxony-Anhalt Information Access Act grants everyone unconditional access to official information available to the authorities of the state, the municipalities and associations of municipalities as well as other corporations, institutions and foundations under public law subject to the supervision of the state. Other organs and bodies of the Land are subject to the law insofar as they perform administrative tasks.

The application must be sent to the public body holding the requested information.

The State Commissioner for Freedom of Information advises on the application process. He may continue to inspect files, request the authorities to comment, mediate, work towards due process in the event of infringements and, if necessary, complain about infringements.

In principle, applications can be submitted informally. If the request concerns data of third parties, it must be justified.

Administrative costs are charged for the implementation of the law. The amount depends on the administrative effort. Simple information is free of charge.

Objection and action for commitment are permissible, in addition, the person concerned can turn to the State Commissioner for Freedom of Information Saxony-Anhalt as a dispute mediator.

The Information Access Act contains several exceptional cases in which access to information may be denied or restricted (e.B personal data of third parties, trade and business secrets).

In case of doubt, the applicant should seek advice from the competent authority or the Land Commissioner for Freedom of Information.
