Freedom of Information (FOI) in Revenue

How far back does FOI apply?

In general, the FOI Act relates to information created after 21 April 1998. However, the following situations are exempt from this:

  • you can access your personal information regardless of when we created it if it is still in existence.
  • non-personal information we created prior to 21 April 1998 where it makes sense of the current record.
